The Premier League old boys looking to down the Red Devils with Istanbul Basaksehir tonight

Manchester United will be up against some familiar faces when they lock horns with Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League tonight, with a handful of Premier League old boys looking to inflict more misery on their season of crisis.

For some time the Turkish outfit has been a popular destination for players to round off their playing days after leaving the English top flight. 

In recent years we’ve seen former Arsenal and Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor feature for the team, as well as ex-City stars Gael Clichy and Robinho and former Newcastle midfielder Emre.
