George Graham fielded three centre backs at Anfield on May 26, 1989 - a move that at first glance seemed defensive.

But the tactic allowed full backs Lee Dixon and Nigel Winterburn to push forward, forcing Liverpool's wingers back, while also giving the Gunners security against the strike duo of John Aldridge and Ian Rush.

Arsenal's clean sheet was vital, laying the ground for Alan Smith and Michael Thomas to score the title-winning goals.
