Arsène Wenger expects to field a "very strong" side at Barnet on Saturday when Arsenal kick-off their pre-season friendlies.

The players have been returning to training in stages over the past few weeks and the names the Frenchman suggests will play at Underhill are those who came back earliest.

"It could be a very strong team at Barnet," Wenger told Arsenal.com.

"Basically the players that are back in training are available, so you could see Kolo Toure, Manuel Almunia, Gael Clichy, Mathieu Flamini, Denilson, Theo Walcott, Robin van Persie and Emmanuel Adebayor. They are all likely to be included so it should be a very familiar side."

* Please be aware that the squads involved in pre-season friendlies are always open to change.
