Watch: Hargreaves’ brilliant tactical analysis of Arsenal under Arteta


Arsenal’s result may yet to have received a significant boost from the arrival of Mikel Arteta as manager, but Owen Hargreaves believes the impact of the new boss’ methods is there for all to see.

And former England midfielder Hargreaves cast his eye over Arsenal’s tactical set-up under Arteta with some insightful analysis.
