It was not as easy peasy as the match against Lyon, but Arsenal still managed to pick up a win over Wolfsburg and come away with the Emirates Cup 2015 title.

Arsene Wenger was all praise for the young 17-year-old Jeff Reine-Adelaide after the first game against Lyon, and the youngster showed some of his creative skills with an assist to remember to allow Theo Walcott do what he does best – score goals.

The Walcott goal was all that was enough for Arsenal to win the match against Wolfsburg 1-0 and the Emirates Cup overall, after their 6-0 romp over Lyon on Saturday.

Lyon fell to Villarreal in the earlier match on Sunday.

As expected, Wenger named a much-changed side from the one that absolutely overwhelmed the French club a day ago, and that bit of not-quite-the-first-team feeling was evident as Arsenal struggled to find their attacking verve in the first half.

If anything, Wolfsburg were the more-controlled team in the first 45, but all that changed in the second half, as Arsenal took the lead early on.

Reine-Adelaide was the provider, skipping one Wolfsburg challenge with ease, before seeing the Walcott run to put the ball on a plate for the England international to provide a nice finish.

From there it was all about might-there-be-more as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, on for Reine-Adelaide, impressed, with Petr Cech, making his debut at the Emirates Stadium, also forced into a couple of saves as Wolfsburg looked to get back into the match.
