Tottenham defender Alan Hutton reckons there is no such thing as the Barclays Premier League 'big four' any more.
Spurs are part of one of the most open title races for years, having finished fourth last season to end Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool's stranglehold on England's Champions League places.
Scotland right-back Hutton said: "I don't think you can see a top four any more. We've probably helped see to that.
"It's a stronger league now. There are six, seven or even eight teams right up there challenging for a top-four spot. It's certainly tougher this season."
Tottenham are fifth, six points off top spot, after Sunday's last-gasp 2-1 win against Liverpool and Hutton added: "We always hear about Manchester United and how they're not playing well, but still win. Well, we're the same. Can we win the title? I don't see why not."
