The return of football after the Interlull was quite dramatic on English soil, Liverpool coming up trumps against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Stoke shipping in three goals at home, Arsenal and United picking up three points on the road while Manchester City continuing their dominance in the league. Read the Lessons learnt from the weekend.

TheHardTackle will take a look at how Arsenal have developed tactically under these three managers from three different eras. Among all of them, there are three masterminds who stand out from the rest. Herbert Chapman, George Graham and Arsene Wenger have made impacts at the club like no other. This is part one and we will take a look at the tactical development under Chapman.

In the last few seasons, a Didier Drogba-inspired Chelsea proved to be too hot, and physical, for Arsenal to handle, winning five of the last six matches between the two sides. However, at the Emirates last season, Gunners played exceptionally well to end the losing streak and defeated Chelsea. TheHardTackle previews the mouth-watering match at Stamford Bridge this Saturday.
