Top ten teams or the ten top teams of the football league.
Which of the above phrases is correct? Are they both correct?
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!)
