Should London's three top sides combine their forces, this is how their starting line-up may look.

Manager: Arsene Wenger, Arsenal -

Tactically brilliant and currently has Arsenal playingsome thrilling stuff.

Goalkeeper: Petr Cech, Chelsea -

The best of the three main goalkeepers in London, Petr Cech is still exceptionally reliable.

Right-back: Kyle Walker, Tottenham -

Fast, strong and direct, Kyle Walker beats Cesar Azpilicueta, Branislav Ivanovic and Bacary Sagna to the right-back spot.


Centre-back: Jan Vertonghen, Tottenham -

Composed, strong and defensively reliable, Jan Vertonghan would be one of the London XI's centre back’s.


Centre-back: Laurent Koscielny, Arsenal -

Reliable, fast and strong in the air, after a shaky start the Frenchman has really settled into the role.


Left-back: Kieran Gibbs, Arsenal -

A better option than the ageing Ashley Cole, Kieran Gibbs is fast and a constant attacking threat.


Centre-midfield: Ramires, Chelsea -

Fast and brilliant cover for the defence, Ramires never stops.


Holding-midfield: Mathieu Flamini, Arsenal -

A very reliable midfielder, Mathieu Flamini pips Sandro and Frank Lampard to the post.


Left-wing: Eden Hazard, Chelsea -

A brilliant signing in 2012, Eden Hazard is by far the best left-winger the London clubs could field.

Right-Wing: Juan Mata, Chelsea -

Not his natural position, but Juan Mata would be the best option for the right wing.


Attacking-midfield: Mesut Ozil, Arsenal -

Signed this summer from Real Madrid, Mesut Ozil would provide the side with constant assists.


Striker: Olivier Giroud, Arsenal -

In blistering form so far this season, Olivier Giroud would lead the line for London.
