Sheffield United´s bid to overturn their relegation from the Premier League began in earnest on Monday with an arbitration panel sitting to decide whether to order a fresh disciplinary hearing against West Ham over the Carlos Tevez affair.

The Blades are hoping to successfully claim that West Ham should have been docked points by an independent commission for including third-party agreements when they signed Tevez and Javier Mascherano, contrary to Premier League rules.

The League are confident no such ruling will emerge from the arbitration tribunal because the three-man panel´s main role is to see whether the correct disciplinary procedures were followed.
