Further to Patty's answer,  top-ten teams  is a journalistic expression that would be employed when describing those sides that have  been consistently in the upper half of a 20-team league over a period of time.    More often, though,  the number is smaller, as in a top-three team.  In Britain,  Chelsea and the Manchester United teams currently fall into this category.  (Sorry if I have upset any Arsenal fans out there!)
