So we've reached the final day of the Barclays Asia Trophy, and Arsenal have a chance of escaping serious injury thanks to Everton beating Stoke City on penalties in their earlier match. Which means Singapore Selection has to face the music instead. (For the record, Singapore Selection fails to score, and loses 0-2 to Stoke. No great disgrace, really.)
The 52,000 and more who attended were treated to a masterclass of football which the Arsenal can only deliver these days. No longer are the days of "Boring, boring Arsenal" or "1-0 to the Arsenal", more like Özil to the Arsenal!
|The stars have finally come out,|
but no Alexis!
|Santi Cazorla and Peter Cech warm up.|
|And the match gets underway!|
|Walcott opens the scoring, just like in the|
FA Cup final, only earlier!
|Cech collects in this great aerial view.|
|Cazorla gives a shot, and a goal is ever looming...|
|The magic of Santi in 3 frames...|
|The midfield maestro turns a defender 3 times!|
|Bang! Its the goal of the match!|
|Özil adds a third goal, and|
Arsene Wenger is wondering how
Arsenal have yet to concede.
|Everton attacks and get a reward with Ross Barkley's goal|
|Here's the final score and Özil.|
|One goal and two assists:|
Santi Cazorla is Man of the Match!
|Winners again! And now for the 2015-16 season!|
|We had a swell time,|
isn't it fun to hang around winners?
