Arsenal thumped Everton 3-1 as goals from Theo Walcott, Santi Cazorla and Mesut Ozil helped them to win the Asia Trophy for the first time.
Below are five things learned from the tournament victory:
Whenever Alexis Sanchez had a rare off day it was Cazorla who stepped up in his absence and that was again the case in the Asia Trophy final.
Granted Sanchez was missing in action due to his exertions in the Copa America but that does not take away from the Spaniards majestic performance.
He was involved in all three goals, cleverly assisting Walcott and Ozil before scoring a well-worked goal himself. The new deeper role Wenger has carved out for playmaker gets the most out of his creative talents and enables him to charge into the box unnoticed.
The number 19 is Arsenal's lynchpin and the guy everyone in the starting XI looks to when starting an attack. For that reason he is at the very least the Gunner's most important player, if not their best.
Both forwards started but whilst the Frenchman toiled and looked laboured, the Englishman was full of verve. Proof of his diligence was his well-taken goal from a sublime Cazorla through ball.
What was particularly striking was that goal came from the middle. Walcott, despite starting on the right hand side had drifted into the middle during this passage of play and was able to use his pace to perfection to brake the offside trap.
The England international gives Arsenal the ability to be direct on the ground, spontaneously changing momentum as opposed to the more 'predictable' being direct in the air threat Giroud offers.
Add in Walcott's sparkling end of season form compared to Giroud's dour form and it is clear on merit it is the number 14 who deserves to be played as the lone frontman.
It must be stressed it was just a friendly, they mean absolutely nothing aside from a team building exercise. However it is encouraging just how fit the Gunners looked. Being better than Everton technically was a given but to run them into the ground the way they did was something else.
The Merseyside club have given Arsenal a world of trouble in the past two season Roberto Martinez has been in charge but there appeared to be a world of difference between the two now.
Arsenal achilles heel has always been taking their foot off the gas too early. The latest culprit was Chamberlain as his sloppy dribble inside his own-half allowed Ross Barkley the chance to slam the ball into the back of the net.
The Englishman has been at the club since 2011 but is arguably still at the same level four years later. Shockingly he only has 78 Premier League games to his name and looks as further away than ever in terms of breaking the first team.
Granted numerous injuries have halted his progress, but at the age of 21 excuses are wearing thin. With competition for places never hotter under any era of Wenger's tenure at the North London Club, the up and coming season presents Chamberlain's biggest challenge yet.
