Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs is set to play his 1,000th career game against Real Madrid tonight.

One of the more remarkable statistics from Giggs's career is that he is the only player to have scored in every season of Premier League football since the competition's inception back in 1992.

And since making his debut in 1991, he has had 244 different team-mates with Manchester United, Wales and Great Britain.

We took a look at some of those Old Trafford 'legends' you may have forget once passed the ball to Giggsy.

1. Clayton Blackmore - "Sunbed" was the classic squad player
