#10. Aston Villa
The Birmingham side always seems to be fighting uphill and the last season saw no change to this. Their character has earned them a loyal fan base and they enjoy some success in various cup runs. Their last crucial silverware fixture was the FA Cup final whereby Arsenal demolished them.
#9. West Ham United
Another team in Claret this time from East London. They have always been the lesser of the London clubs and are forever struggling to finish in the top four. The last season saw them finish in the bottom tier of the table but qualify for the Europa league on Fifa fair play rules.
