We dominated Everton from start to finish in the final of the Barclays Asia trophy, and ran out deserved and comfortable 3-1 winners.
Theo Walcott, Santi Cazorla, and Mesut Özil all got on the scoresheet, and there were a number of positives we can take from the game.

There has been a lot of talk over who should start in midfield next season, with a plethora of options at Arsene Wenger’s disposal. Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere are both quality options, and are likely to be the future of our midfield. They were outclassed by Cazorla and Özil against Everton however, with the latter pair involved in all three of our goals.
