first_img Walcott’s pace took him clear of Everton defender Seamus Coleman in the 22nd minute and the Arsenal striker was able to toe-poke home the game’s opening goal. Cech pulled off a fine save to push Steven Naismith’s first-half effort on to the crossbar, but Cazorla cut inside on the edge of the penalty area to drill home a low shot and double Arsenal’s lead in the 58th minute before Ozil slotted home a third four minutes later. Barkley’s emphatic finish made it 3-1 in the 75th minute, but it did little to paper over what had been a disappointing Everton display. Arsenal had sealed their place in the final by beating a Singapore Select XI 4-0, while Everton won through against Stoke after a penalty shootout. Arsenal stepped up their pre-season campaign with an impressive 3-1 win over Everton in the Asia Trophy final in Singapore. Arsene Wenger handed a debut to new signing Petr Cech and saw goals from Theo Walcott, Santi Cazorla and Mesut Ozil secure his side victory in front of a crowd of 53,000 at the National Stadium. Everton midfielder Ross Barkley scored a late consolation, but the result was never in doubt. center_img Press Associationlast_img
