No-one is guarantee a place in the top-four, according to
Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea appear so often in the Champions League spots that they have become known as "The Top Four". The last side to break into that quartet was Everton in 2005 who knocked their city rivals Liverpool down to fifth place. However Rafa Benitez' side still managed to win a seat at Europe's top table by winning the Champions League against Milan on penalties.
Still his Arsenal counterpart argues this seemingly impregnable position is under-threat this season by a number of emerging clubs.
"It is not guaranteed for everybody," said Wenger. "Teams like Villa and Man City who are doing well, Everton and Portsmouth can fight to be in the top four too. It is becoming more and more interesting for the teams moving up."
