Whilst it’s great to see the likes of Owen Hargreaves, Ji-Sung Park and Dimitar Berbatov present, it’s not so great to notice Edwin Van der Sar, Jonny Evans, John O’Shea, Gary Neville and of course, Rio Ferdinand, are all missing.
Of course, it’s only Besiktas, meaning Van der Sar wasn’t expected to play anyway, but let’s hope the knock to the knee he received against Everton doesn’t keep him out at the weekend.
