United have a few players on the bench who joined the club after the treble season, but they’re all considered legends their own ways.

Current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer takes to the bench like he did on that incredible night in Barcelona.

Peter Schmiechel starts in goal, while Gary Neville, Jaap Stam, Ronny Johnsen and Denis Irwin take up the defence. Other familiar faces in the starting eleven include David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes, Jasper Blomqvist, Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole.

Hopefully today’s game contains half the drama it did 20-years ago, with Solskjaer scoring in the dying moments to win it for the pride of all Europe.
