This may be a little harsh on the Arsenal players Jack Wilshere and Mathieu Flamini, who in theory could form a third Arsenal central midfield of their own, but I think that there are two clear options for Arsene Wenger to select to start for the Gunners.
I am assuming that what we have seen from Arsenal in pre-season so far is the shape of things to come and so I see two separate midfield pairings; with Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin together in one and Mikel Arteta and Aaron Ramsey in the other.
The first of these duos has the great technical skill, passing precision and creative ability of the Spaniard with the great defensive and battling ability of Coquelin to allow him the freedom to play. The second pair has less of that defensive strength but the extra technical skill of Arteta and the energy and all round class of Ramsey.
But which of these is the best option to face Chelsea in the Community Shield on Sunday? I guess it depends on how the boss wants to approach the game and how he expects Mourinho to set up. I would expect their tactics to be defensive and counter attacking and in that case I think we need the protection of Coquelin and the vision of Cazorla. What do you think Gooners?
