Is this Arsenal's strongest team for start of season?

Arsenal defend their Amsterdam Tournament crown this weekend in the final two pre-season games before the new campaign starts in earnest next week, so I think we can expect to see Arsene Wenger tinkering with what will be his strongest team today and tomorrow.

The bad news ahead of our Champions League qualifier against FC Twente next Wednesday is that both Samir Nasri and Abou Diaby have picked up a knock that will rule them out - and possibly out of the Premier League opener against West Brom a week tomorrow.

But with the Gunners set to face Ajax tonight and Sevilla tomorrow evening, just who do you want to see making the starting 11 in Le Gaffer's thoughts?

The make-up of the Arsenal midfield is the real uncertainty for me, as I'm still unsure who Wenger's first choice for the Mathieu Flamini defensive midfielder role is. Personally I'd go for either Denilson or Alexandre Song, but with the latter off on duty with Cameroon at the Olympics, the field is narrowed down for me.

I'm not Emmanuel Eboue's biggest fan, but for some reason Arsene Wenger is, and for that reason I think the Ivorian will again start for the Gunners a lot this season, with players such as Theo Walcott and Mark Randall replacing him for an injection of pace when opposition legs start to get weary...

In the centre of the park it's obvious that Cesc Fabregas will be the lynchpin, but it will be interesting to see where Samir Nasri fits in to the formation as his role at Marseilles was playing just behind the strikers and that's almost the position where Cesc likes to play.

With no new blood in defence, the back four pick themselves (if Kolo Toure has recovered from malaria and is fully fit).

And up front, I've been impressed by the way in which Emmanuel Adebayor and Robin van Persie have played in pre-season and with Nicklas Bendtner, Carlos Vela and Theo Walcott breathing down their necks, the competition for places in attack gives Le Boss an interesting selection dilemma.

So in a nutshell, here's who my starting 11 would be, plus the seven subs that teams are allowed this season:

Manuel Almunia

Bacary Sagna, Kolo Toure, William Gallas, Gael Clichy

Emmanuel Eboue, Cesc Fabregas, Denilson, Theo Walcott

Robin van Persie, Emmanuel Adebayor

Subs: Lukasz Fabianski, Philippe Senderos, Johan Djourou, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Nicklas Bendtner, Carlos Vela

Do you agree? Does Jack Wilshere merit a place on the bench? Share your thoughts on Arsenal's strongest starting 11 here.
