Play Fantasy Arsene Wenger: Who would you choose to start against Liverpool?

Arsenal will have home advantage tomorrow night in the first of our triple header against Liverpool and it's vital that we make that advantage count as when we travel to Merseyside next week, it will be a tough place to get a result.

The character that the Gunners showed in coming back against Bolton at the weekend came just at the right time and my guess would be that Arsene Wenger will keep the faith in those players when it comes to taking on Rafa Benitez and his team tomorrow.

I'd fancy Emmanuel Adebayor to start ahead of Nicklas Bendtner, mind you, and I reckon Emmanuel Eboue will get the nod over Abou Diaby, with the prospect of Theo Walcott coming off the bench in the latter stages of the game to test the tiring Liverpool defence.

Whatever teams the managers pick, you can be sure there will be changes in the following encounters on Saturday and next Tuesday, but the starting line-ups tomorrow could prove vital for confidence across all three games, so I think both managers will go with their strongest possible teams.

Share your thoughts on the starting 11 here. My choice would be this:

Toure Gallas Senderos Clichy
Eboue Fabregas Flamini Hleb
Adebayor Van Persie

I would go with your exact squad, as it is the only bang on choice (right now, due to injuries) for out starting XI:

Toure Gallas Senderos Clichy
Eboue Fabregas Flamini Hleb
Van Persie

I even go so far as to say we throw out the 4-5-1, with RvP providing the link up between midfield and adebayor, so he isn't stranded on long balls.

If walcott wasn't such a liability on the defensive end, I would slot him in for eboue. Throw Bendtner, Diaby, Walcott, Lehmann, Alex Song (he's on the CL roster, righto?), Gilberto & whoever else on the bench and go for the throat!

I stick Eboue out on the stake. Then slowly turn him until he's nicely roasted. Then I'd feed him to Avram Grant. Theo all the way please...
