Is this Sunderland's strongest starting XI for Tony Mowbray to choose following ten summer signings?

Sunderland have completed ten signings this summer - but who makes it into their strongest starting XI?

Daniel Ballard, Jewison Bennette, Abdoullah Ba, Leon Dajaku, Aji Alese, Jack Clarke, Alex Bass, Amad Diallo, Edouard Michut and Ellis Simms have all signed for the Black Cats since the end of last season.
