Ross Barkley's wondergoal could not stop Everton being battered by a Santi Cazorla inspired Arsenal in the Barclays Premier League Asia Trophy final.
The Spaniard set-up Theo Walcott for the frst goal of the game in the first-half. Cazorla got the second himself in the second-half and even had time to assist Mesut Ozil who scored the Gunners' last goal before Barkley's consolation.
The victory means Arsenal are the latest Premier League club to win the pre-season tournament which is hosted every two years.
The North London Club never looked like losing as they dominated the Toffees from beginning to end. The opener came in the 22nd-minute as Cazorla threading a through-ball with his left boot and Walcott beat the offside trap to slot the ball past Joel Robles' arms.
Prior to the game, a team in red had never won the Asia Trophy but when a series of Cazorla dummies bamboozled the Everton, history looked like changing. The Spaniard made sure of it by drilling a shot past James McCarthy's legs on the edge of the box on the 57th-minute.
The Gunners defeated Everton 2-0 at home last season and went one better as Ozil tripled the lead in the 62nd-minute as he completed a one-two with Cazorla before slamming the ball into the back of the net.
Arsene Wenger will be delighted his men looked far fitter than their rivals but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's mistake in the 82nd-minute will give him some cause for concern. The Englishman dribbled in his area and was dispossed by Gareth Barry. Barkely recived the ball and smashed on the edge of the box to score the best goal of the tournament.
