When you mention Arsenal and Huddersfield Town in the same breath, it's almost impossible not to think of Herbert Chapman.

The clubs are intrinsically linked by their connection to the legendary manager whose trail-blazing work in 1920s and 1930s put both on the football map.

One of the most innovative and astute managers of all time, Chapman guided Huddersfield to two consecutive League titles in 1924 and 1925 before moving to London to scale even greater heights.

Chapman led Arsenal to their first major trophy in 1930 when they beat Huddersfield - who else? - in the FA Cup Final. League success followed in 1931 and 1933 before Chapman's untimely death a few months before another title was secured in 1934.
