The traditional Premier League top four has become the top six in recent years.
Gone are the days of Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool dominating at the top table in England and securing Champions League football each season.
Now the nouveau riche Manchester City and growing force of Tottenham Hotspur are big players – more so than Liverpool and Arsenal who have been forced to feed on scraps in the last couple of seasons.
But despite the power held by the new top six, there is plenty of quality outside of those teams as Premier League sides attempt to bridge the gap with better scouting.
So we've compiled a best XI from players playing outside the top six. There are still some big names and plenty of international talent in the side, which we reckon would make a good fist of breaking into the top six.
Watch the video above to see if you agree with our selections and let us know via Facebook and Twitter who would make your non top six XI.
