Arsene Wenger: No More Big Four

Arsene Wenger recently stated that the position of the 'Big Four' is highly jeopardised and could cease to exist.

In a recent statement, world class Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claimed that the top four spot is about to be breached. The French manager told The Sun “For me the so-called ‘Big Four’ in England is about to change. It won’t last much longer."

The former Monaco manager then turned his attention to the results that back his words.

“This year in the Premier League there have been changes which are, in reality, good for football values. Manchester United beat Sunderland only in the last minute and drew at Spurs, we were beaten by Stoke and Hull."

Wenger does a have a point as newly promoted Hull City are sixth, while Aston Villa have breached the top four spot this weekend for the second time in a few weeks.

And this isn't the first time this has happened in the last few years. Just last year Everton were fourth for much of the season only to be over hauled by Liverpool.

In the 2005-2006 campaign, Arsenal clinched fourth place in the last match day courtesy of a Spurs loss combined with a victory over Wigan. The year before that, Everton was actually able to claim a champions league earning fourth place finish.

Do you think the time has come for the EPL's chasing pack to over come the big guns?

Or do you think it's still too early?
