Nowadays this isn’t the case anymore: big clubs such as Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have joined the club and are also competing for the title, turning the ‘Top Four’ into the ‘Big Six’. The last two seasons, Manchester City won the league-title, as they also did in 2012 and 2014. In 2012, it was the first time a club outside the ‘Top Four’ had won the title since 1995.
