People still use the term the top four, but is the 'Top Four' still considered as Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool. Or is it Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham/Man City Ect.

I'm confused, as many people still say the top four, but I have no idea who the top four are any more :S:S:mad:

Sorry if there is already a thread like this, I couldn't find one. <)

Personly because of the fall of Liverpool i think its a top 3 now. Chelsea, Man Utd and Arsenal. If a team i.e City, Spurs finish in the top 4 for a few years then they will be classed a top 4 team but until then i think its a top 3.

Although liverpool have had a torrid season you still consider them a top 6 team at worst.. you dont go through 20 years of consistancy to be called **** after a rough year....

Man city, Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man united

If i had to say top 4 at present
Man United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Man city

It's no longer a top 4.

City and Spurs have forced their way in, and even though Liverpool have dropped in the last season and a half they are still one of the better sides in the league.

Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs, City and Liverpool.

Top four are the top four teams in the league at the end of the season, so atm it's Chelsea, Man Utd, Arsenal and Spurs.

The big four are considered to be the biggest teams in England and they are Man Utd, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea.

But Tbh the top 4 has always been

Man united, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea

a bad year for the reds wont change that .. in my eyes Tottenham will never be a top 4 side too inconsistant, only team that will break that in coming years is man city due to their large transfer budget

But mark my words lpool will be back you just have to ride through the storm ;)

No big 4 left in my opinion. If anything it's the big 3 and the rest.

i think it's going to end up as a top 4 with city replacing liverpool as i can't see them rehauling city or spurs this season or next by which point torres would probably look for champs league footy and i can't see spurs staying a force when redknapp either retires or takes the england job.
