Leicester City Are 'A Big Six Club' And 'Better' Than Tottenham Hotspur And Arsenal

Leicester City Are 'A Big Six Club' And 'Better' Than Tottenham Hotspur And Arsenal

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie O'Hara has said that Leicester City will consistently finish above Spurs and their north London rivals in the next few years, calling the Foxes a 'big club.'


Leicester added the club's first ever FA Cup trophy to their trophy cabinet, to go alongside the Premier League trophy won in 2016 as recent additions.

The win over Chelsea was one in the eye for the 'big six' and Brendan Rodgers' side could land another one if they beat the Blues, or Liverpool, to a top four spot at the end of the season.


Fellow 'big six' sides Spurs and Arsenal are both someway off the Champions League places and O'Hara, who played in north London from 2005-2011, believes Leicester are a 'big six' club for the way they're run.

"The standout thing for me was at the final whistle the players were all together," the former Wolves midfielder told talkSPORT.

"The connection they've got with the owners and fans is brilliant.

"I'd love Spurs to be like that. I feel like Leicester, and I don't care what anyone says, are a big six football club.


"The way they run the place, the way they do business, the way they back their manager.

"The manager they've got is world class as well as the players they've got in there now.

"It's just a brilliant club to be at. I'm so glad they won it. A lot of people had written them off, including me, because I thought Chelsea would have been too strong for them.


"They were fantastic and it was a brilliant moment for the owners.

"They're not a poor football club, they've got rich owners, but they run the place properly. What I love about them is that they go about their business the right way.

"Everyone is connected with the football club, everyone is part of it. The fans all feel part of the football club.

"You can see the way that Schmeichel is hugging the owner, that would never happen with Spurs. You'd never see Daniel Levy running on the pitch, picking up the trophy, and cheering together.


"That is what a football club should be like."

The so called 'big six' have dominated England's top tier for some time, often finishing in the top four spots, and they were all involved in the much maligned European Super League.


With Tottenham and Arsenal both finishing well outside the top four, and both still potentially finishing outside the top six this year, they were heavily mocked for being involved in the competition.

O'Hara believes the two sides from north London should get used to finishing below Leicester in the league, adding, "This 'commercial big six' is nonsense. They are a big six football club. They are in there and consistent.

"I guarantee over the next three or four years they will consistently finish higher than Spurs or Arsenal."

Spurs haven't won any silverware since the League Cup in 2008, the Gunners have been more successful with FA Cup wins in 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2020 but haven't won the league since 2004.
