An emotional Ryan Giggs is addressing the crowd. He has called for their continued support as he holds back the tears.
Man Utd 3 Hull City 1. United end their home campaign with a welcome win. James Wilson steals the show on an emotional night for the home support at Old Trafford.
Desperate defending from Hull as they first block a well-struck strike from Buttner and then a second effort from Kagawa. United have the visitors pegged back inside their own box.
Giggs gets the ball up and over the wall. It arches towards the top corner, but Jakupovic can get across to parry behind. Wry smile from the Hull keeper as he knows he is the villain of the piece now.
Kagawa looks to take a high ball on his chest. He has Figueroa at his back and is bundled over. Free-kick given. United with a shooting chance 30 yards from goal, dead centre. Giggs over it.
Fellaini crashes into a challenge to win the ball back. Buttner can't force play down the left, but settles for a throw.
Januzaj with a long chase down the left. He is caught as the ball crosses the by-line. Meyler left his foot in and could face action from the FA after this game finishes. He knew where Januzaj was and opted to tread on his ankle.
Smalling also sets up a nervy finish. Sagbo in behind down the left and volleying across the face of goal. Smalling slides in to try and cut out the cross, but ends up diverting the ball straight at De Gea - either side and it would have been 3-2.
That should be it now. No time for Hull to find two more. Van Persie will be delighted to be back among the goals. A good night all round for the hosts.
GOAL MAN UTD - VAN PERSIE. Giggs with an assist as the hosts wrap up the points. A threaded pass finds Van Persie, who sees his first shot blocked but pounces on the rebound to drill into the bottom corner right-footed.
Hull still probing. With only one goal in this tie, they are still in it. United will feel they should be out of sight, but they aren't. Anything could happen from here.
Fellaini getting involved again with Meyler, both men on yellow cards so have to be careful. No sense in getting sent off at this stage of the season.
Kagawa beats himself with a turn in midfield. Hull look to spring Sagbo down their left, but a chipped pass aimed in his direction drifts out of play. United got back to De Gea and start again from the back. Januzaj runs them over halfway. Van Persie takes over and drills a shot from the edge of the box straight at Jakupovic.
Elmohamady not happy with his manager as he is replaced by Livermore. He appears to be suggesting that he was okay to continue. Not worth taking a risk with a cup final to think about.
Elmohamady down again following a chase to the by-line which helped to provide the chance for Meyler. His cross was half-cleared by Smalling and a well-struck shot from the edge of the box was seen very late by De Gea - great stop.
Van Persie to Januzaj, and the Dutchman continues his run. The ball is returned his way 12 yards out, but he can't wrap his right foot around the ball and turn a shot on target. End-to-end stuff.
Elmohamaday with a testing delivery from deep on the right. Sagbo lurking 10 yards out, but again Smalling is in the right place for United. Meyler then so close to levelling as United can't clear their lines and De Gea is forced into a smart reflex save.
A wild clearance from Elmohamady gave the corner away. Giggs, as boss, decides he is going to do everything. He plays the set-piece short. Ball worked to Buttner, who sees his delivery nodded out by a crowd of players at the back post. Fryatt counters.
Sagbo touches off to Quinn. United pegged back. Giggs, who else, steps in to break things up and send Fellaini forward. Giggs joins in support and skips past Bruce. His low cross is turned behind.
Another positive burst by Boyd, but it comes to nothing. United rocking slightly when put under pressure in their own defensive third. Surely they won't throw this away, will they?
United have to remain switched on the back. Elmohamady down the right and lifting over a cross which has to be nodded out by Smalling.
Beautifully done by Giggs on the edge of the area as he makes a yard of space for himself. His shot is half-blocked, taking the sting out of it. Jakupovic can drop on the loose ball ahead of Fellaini.
Giggs closes down Quinn and emerges with the ball. He is surrounded by three blue shirts by the corner flag and has no way out. Sagbo chases United all the way back to De Gea, with Vidic doing his keeper few favours with a dodgy back-pass.
Giggs's first touch is a perfectly weighted pass into Van Persie. He touches off to Kagawa and spins in behind. The return ball has too much on it and runs through to Jakupovic.
Another counter by Januzaj. He squares for Fellaini, who skews horribly wide of the target. The moment has arrived for Giggs as he comes on in place of Lawrence.
Wrong choice from Fryatt as he brushes off one tackle and then looks to roll in Sagbo. Break down in communication as Sagbo breaks to his right and the ball is played to his left. Lawrence counters, but is knocked off the ball.
Fellaini felled by Fryatt. Giggs is stripped and ready. An emotional night at Old Trafford about to get a whole lot more emotional for United supporters. Will this be the last the Theatre of Dreams sees of the Welsh wizard?
Hull get into another promising position on their left, but again their delivery lets them down. Figueroa this time floats a cross behind for a goal kick.
Giggs warming up now. Warm reception from the crowd who want to see their player-boss grace the Old Trafford for possibly the last time. They might not have to wait long.
Boyd sends over a cross from the left, but slices his delivery badly and sees the ball sail into the crowd. Sagbo not too impressed in the middle after racing into the box.
There will be no hat-trick for Wilson as he has now been replaced. Slightly harsh, but Van Persie is now with us.
GOAL HULL CITY - FRYATT. Just as I say there is no way back, the visitors snatch a lifeline. Fryatt finds bustles into space 25 yards out and whips a curling effort beyond the reach of De Gea.
Wilson now on a hat-trick! Hull surely beaten now. They haven't looked like getting one, never mind two. United will be keen to get their youngster a match ball. Rooney and Welbeck enjoying things in the stands.
GOAL MAN UTD - WILSON. The night gets better and better for United's teenage striker. Januzaj with electric pace to escape Davies and has Fellaini square. His first time shot from eight yards out is parried by Jakupovic for Wilson to turn into an empty net.
United back on the front foot, with Januzaj teasing Figueroa again. He looks for Kagawa on the edge of the box, then gets the ball back. He again hangs a cross up for Fellaini, but Hull can glance to safety.
Hull trying to play their way forward. Bruce eventually has to clip forward, onto the chest of Vidic. He calmly strokes the ball out from the back. Lawrence cutting inside from the left and finding Kagawa. Fellaini squanders possession.
Another corner to United, which Smalling meets ahead of Vidic. The whistle goes. Looking at the hand ball claims, Vidic nods against the arm of Davies - who can't get out of the way - and Quinn then slips and falls on the ball - also unintentional.
Januzaj with a brilliant run that takes him past two defenders. He has been really impressive tonight. Meyler slides in to concede a corner. Vidic up at the back post. Two hand ball shouts are waved away against Davies and Quinn.
Figueroa gives the ball away again. Bruce wins it back and Elmohamady can make inroads. He does well to force over a low cross from the by-line, but the ball drops harmlessly into the hands of De Gea at his near post.
Figueroa down the left for Fryatt to chase, but asking too much of him as the ball runs out of play. Giggs in talks with Butt and Neville again. When will he introduce himself? On the field, Januzaj loops a pass into the box, but Jakupovic gathers ahead of Wilson.
Boyd drops deep again as he comes in search of the ball. United playing very high, which they can get away with as Hull are still offering very little going forward.
Free-kick played short and square. United lacking in urgency, which is allowing Hull to nip in and get a toe to the ball when they have to - breaking things up in the middle of the park.
The corner comes to nothing as Jakupovic comes through the crowd to pluck Januzaj's delivery out of the air. He looks long, but Buttner can break out. Sagbo tugs at his shirt - free-kick to United wide on their left.
Carrick controlling from deep. He has plenty of movement ahead of him, but Hull have plenty of men back. Januzaj finds a yard 25 yards out and tests Jakupovic with a dipping drive. Hull keeper parries behind.
Vidic breaking forward, perhaps he wants a farewell goal. United go right again. This time they do loop the ball into the box early. Januzaj hangs the ball over, but only into the hands of Jakupovic.
Januzaj ambling back into his own half. United prepared to keep the ball and be patient. It is up to Hull to raise the tempo and go looking for a leveller. Should they do that, then holes will open up.
Hull have reverted to a 4-4-2 formation on the back of their half-time changes. Should help them to ensure that United don't get any joy down the flanks.
Lawrence fancies the free-kick himself. Januzaj tees him up, but he slips as he shoots and drills into the wall. United go out to the right and Januzaj. His cross is hooked wide by an acrobatic volley from Wilson.
Meyler concedes an early free-kick and is booked. He was chasing Lawrence and had a tug at his arm. Promising position for United 30 yards from goal.
Mohammed Usmaan says: "As I wanted Hull are sitting deep. United need more creativity from the likes of Kagawa."
Connor Chapman says: "Good to see Wilson get a goal on his debut, just need to press on and get a few more goals now. Mata should come on after the break and Giggs with half an hour or so left."
Martin Ives says: "Wilson has now scored for the U18, U19, U21 and First team in the same season. The future is bright!"
Marie O'Donnell says: "Well done to the young lad Wilson a fitting ending for a fantastic captain would be to see Vidic on the score sheet hope it comes true and would just like to say to Vidic thank you for 8 years."
Harry Allman says: "Really glad Wilson was the scorer I've been waiting to see if he can do it on big stage and there have been pointers him and Januzaj can build a great relationship! Been our best players and add rvp to that later and I see a few more coming our way."
Craig Stone says: "Giggs seams to running things the only way he knows, the Fergie way!! if only Man Utd would listen."
Remember you can also bet in-play at Skybet.com. United are now 1/8 to take the spoils, with Hull 20/1 and the draw 6/1. You can get 6/1 on the Red Devils winning 3-0.
How do you see the second half going? Get your thoughts in to Chris.Burton@bskyb.com or @Burtytweets.
Man Utd 1 Hull City 0. A dream debut for teenage striker James Wilson as his effort separates the two teams at the interval.
Rosenior races out, but Boyd slows a Hull move down. Smalling offers them a late opportunity to push men forward as he trips Meyler wide on the left. Big men trot forward from the back. Koren dinks the ball in, and it is cleared.
Lawrence into the feet of Kagawa. Very crowded on the edge of the Hull penalty area. Fellaini the only man in the box, but he has his arms up. United haven't put man balls into the air for him to challenge for - although he did lay on the goal.
Quinn back among his own defenders to get on the ball. Meyler then plays a terrible pass to Lawrence, but he and Kagawa are unable to beat two Hull defenders. Flag up against Long as the visitors hammer down field.
Hull can spring out on the counter, with Elmohamady racing clear down the right. He tries to centre, with Long and Koren bursting into the box. The delivery skids along the floor and Vidic can flick clear with the outside of his boot.
United play their way out from the back. when they do go long, Wilson has to chase towards the corner flag. Figueroa always winning that race, but his clearance is picked up by Carrick.
Januzaj cutting inside off the right once more. He looks for Lawrence, but Bruce is there to tidy up for Hull. Buttner tries again and clips a cross to the back post. Fellaini interested, but Jakupovic can back-peddle and claim under little pressure.
Long forces the ball over from by the corner flag. Quinn gathers, but has two red shirts in his face. United able to scramble the ball out. Figueroa then gifts them it back and Carrick wins a free-kick.
Giggs out passing a message on to Januzaj. Elmohamady back on his feet and walking to the touchline. Bruce looks a little concerned, but it appears a senior performer for Hull will be okay to continue. Play back under way.
Quinn took a blow to his ankle and needs a moment to recover. He will be okay to continue. Fellaini has caught him twice now. Elmohamady then goes down and the trainer is back on.
Hearing that Jones has left Old Trafford in an ambulance with his arm in a sling, but it is precautionary at the moment. On the field, United's latest attack breaks down on their left flank. Fellaini then becomes the first man into the book for leaving his foot in on Quinn.
Vidic out to Carrick on the left. He floats an early ball into the area, but Wilson is caught on his heels and Jakupovic can claim comfortably.
Buttner up above Elmohamady to nod out for a throw. Hull seeing more of the ball now, but again they end up back with Bruce and Figueroa. United doing a great job of forcing them back.
Hull knocking the ball confidently around midfield, but United are sitting off and allowing them to play sideways. Hosts keeping the Tigers at arm's length.
Bruce fires down the right for Hull. Long can glance on, but Boyd is running from very deep and never looks like getting there. Lawrence leads a counter, but is unable to cut inside from the right onto his left foot.
Hull suddenly spring out. A bouncing ball into the box is met by Long, with De Gea far too late off his line. United have enough bodies back to see out the danger. When the ball is returned goalwards, De Gea is back on his line to gather.
United hadn't made the most of Fellaini's height up until that point. He is now getting a talking to from the referee after clattering into Quinn. No cards as yet.
GOAL MAN UTD - WILSON. Dream debut for the United youngster. Januzaj floats the free-kick to the back post. Fellaini nods back across the face of goal and Wilson gets in front of two defenders to crash into the back of the net.
Great flick from Januzaj into Kagawa. He has Valencia making ground to his right, but an over-hit pass gives him no chance. United come again through Januzaj and this time he does get a decision as he tumbles over Rosenior's leg. Free-kick to United wide on their right.
Elmohamaday with a throw in the United half, but Hull go back to Bruce. He has to go long but only has Long to aim at and he is easily muscled out of the way by Vidic. Hull need to offer more up top.
Buttner spots a clever run from Kagawa, but so does Bruce as he slides in to force the United man away from goal. Meyler then looks to lead Hull out and sees his heels clipped.
Jakupovic forced to hack high into the air. Quinn underneath the dropping ball, but nods up rather than forwards. Valencia leads another United charge. He allows Januzaj to take over and he dances into the box. He goes down again, with Figueroa in attendance once more, but again he is waved to his feet and a hand ball shout falls on deaf ears.
Smalling strides out from the back, but goes short to Januzaj. He slips inside Boyd, but Lawrence is then crowded out 35 yards from goal. Hull happy to get a touch of the ball again.
Valencia met by Boyd, forcing him inside. He tries a one-two with Januzaj, but gets the ball caught under his feet. Not happening at the moment. United lacking in cutting edge and Hull offering virtually nothing as an attacking force.
Kagawa drifts through midfield. He has time and space in which to get his head up and spot Fellaini at the back post. He tries to chip a floated pass in that direction, but fires straight out of play. Not great.
Vidic immediately shouting out instructions to those around him. He will be a big miss next season when he heads to Inter Milan - such a commanding presence. Play back under way and Lawrence racing down the left, but having to play backwards.
Hull making life difficult for United as they sit very deep and cover all runs made in front of them. Boyd gets the ball back, but immediately gives it away. Play finally stopped for a free-kick and Vidic can be introduced in place of the injured Jones.
Fellaini chests into the path of Januzaj, who can only loop the ball into the area and into the hands of Jakupovic. Vidic still limbering up. On the field, ball back at the feet of De Gea. He plays out to Buttner.
United still waiting for the ball to go out of play so they can make their change. They work from right to left through midfield. Buttner faced by Quinn, and has to come back inside. Slow build-up from United, who then go all the way back to De Gea.
Carrick has dropped in to cover at centre-half. Vidic being readied. United still controlling possession, but not really hurting Hull. Smalling looks for Januzaj, but his run down the right is easily tracked.
Giggs over to see what the problem is with Jones. He is heading back towards the tunnel. Vidic is going to get more of a run-out than he expected. Jones doesn't look happy - World Cup to think about for him.
Januzaj's delivery is seen away at the front post. Jones had a good run at the ball and clatters into Figueroa as the Hull man clears. Both men go down. Jones forced to the sidelines holding his shoulder.
Smalling pushing over halfway. Fellaini comes looking for the ball. He is among those with a point to prove to the new United boss, whoever that may be. Lawrence found down the middle and sets off on a direct dart. He shoots from 20 yards out, and sees his effort flick off Figueroa and over the top.
Valencia into Kagawa. Everything to his left. Buttner cuts inside off the left, but sees space closed down on the edge of the box. Neat football from United takes the ball to Fellaini, but a loose touch 18 yards out takes it away from him.
Boyd dropping very deep to get involved. Hull looking for holes in the United rearguard. Figueroa decides to go over the top, but Jones gets up well ahead of Long down the middle.
Davies forced to go long. He finds the head of Long, who can nod down into the feet of Quinn. Hull soon going backwards again, with United pressing high up the field.
Januzaj with a loose pass inside for Kagawa. Hull push forward once more. Better from Hull as they keep the ball for an extended period of time. They are, however, going backwards. Ball back with Bruce.
Lawrence sends Meyler tumbling to the turf. Free-kick to Hull just outside their own box. Giggs holding talks with his coaching team. Has been a steady start from United.
Corner played short, and then out to the right. Bit of a waste as United had sent men forward. Ball eventually worked to Lawrence, but he wants too many touches on the edge of the box and is crowded out. Hull with 10 men behind the ball.
Long forces Carrick to play back to De Gea. Carrick then clips the ball left to Buttner, and gets it back. A chipped pass looking for Wilson is knocked down to Lawrence. He slips in field and finds Kagawa again. A low drive flicks off Meyler and behind for a corner.
Buttner and Valencia pushing well forward from full-back, offering plenty of width. Smalling now driving down the middle and finding Lawrence. He tees up Kagawa, who takes a touch and lashes high over the top from 25 yards out.
Jakupovic with another wayward clearance, straight to Buttner. Figueroa then prevents Januzaj from getting down the right flank. Finally, Hull can carry the ball into the United half. Quinn into Long, who slides a pass forward looking for Long. Smalling quick enough to get back and clear.
Wilson with a heavy first touch which loops the ball into air. Valencia too eager to win it back and concedes a free-kick inside the Hull half. Visitors play back to Jakupovic, who hammers long. Possession gifted back to the hosts.
Valencia into Carrick, who goes square to Buttner. He opts against an ambitious effort from 25 yards out. Nice flick from Valencia into Januzaj, who is seeing plenty of the ball and controlling things.
Januzaj bursting down the right and into the box. Figueroa has to slide in from behind and takes ball and man. Januzaj goes to ground, but a corner is given. Looking at it again, Figueroa is a lucky boy as he wrapped his legs around Januzaj and didn't take much of the ball. Set-piece comes to nothing.
Valencia cutting inside and finding Wilson, as he drops deep. Ball then fed wide to Januzaj. He hangs a cross to the back post, where Fellaini nods down into the six-yard box. Wilson sniffing around, but Bruce puts in a brave sliding block. Cleaner contact and the youngster could have scored.
Fellaini back to Kagawa. He has Wilson running through the box, but a chipped pass fails to find its target. Hull happy to hack back up to halfway. Patient play from United as they look to give everyone an early touch.
Valencia into the feet of Januzaj, who starts in the middle of the park. United looking to get the ball wide, but Hull not prepared to let the hosts settle in possession.
Giggs and Bruce wandering down the touchline deep in conversation. As he's on the bench tonight, Giggs in a tracksuit this evening.
Warm round of applause for Vidic prior to kick-off as he is presented with a leaving memento by United legend Sir Bobby Charlton.
Teams out onto the field. Still a lot of empty seats around, but a decent turnout for a midweek end-of-season contest. Pre-match formalities under way. Almost ready for the off. Game faces on!
The players are in the tunnel, with Hull first out, so we will have to leave the feedback there for now. There will be further opportunities to have your say at half-time and at the final whistle.
Eimantas Noreikis says: "I am pleased to see Giggs developing the youth players... It's what England needs, some development with the experienced players. Anyway I'm going for a 3-0 win for United with Wilson and Kagawa 2."
Martin Ives says: "Nice to see the youngsters on, but Carrick has not earned the captaincy with his recent displays, United win tonight... Just!"
Harry Smith says: "As a neutral I'd like to see Hull grab all 3 points here and you never know what could happen, just look at the Sunderland game. But realistically I think the Utd players will play for Giggs and get a result. I'm going to say 3-1 United."
Giggs takes a break from warm-up duties to have a word with Nicky Butt - now on the coaching team. The player-boss then disappears off down the tunnel to get his final preparations ready.
Darren Passmore says: "It's going to be emotional tonight, I grew up watching Ryan Giggs play, he was an idol to me one of the very best players of a generation, do us proud. 2-0 come on United!!!"
A little over 20 minutes until kick-off. Keep your pre-match thoughts coming in to Chris.Burton@bskyb.com or @Burtytweets.
So, no Ferdinand or Evra in United's matchday squad. Does that mean they will be staying on next year, or have they been denied a final run-out at Old Trafford?
Darren Iley says: "I was worried we might be on the end of a thumping going into this game as were are in poor form and Utd have a lot to prove... But having seen the team sheets I fancy Hull to sneak a point - D.. Hull Fan."
Players out on the field being put through their paces as Old Trafford starts to fill up. Behind the scenes Steve Bruce tells Sky Sports that tonight is about 'freshening up' for Hull. He admits he never thought it would be possible that he could come here and 'rest players'. Tigers boss also full of praise for Giggs, a man he considers to be a 'great' of the game.
Logan Peachey adds: "Tonight will be a high emotion game and what better way to say goodbye to a legend then to win our last home game with Vidic! We will miss you Vidic, we must win today! Man United 3-1 Hull City!"
Matt Saunders says: "Lawrence ? Wilson? Sorry but United's squad is dreadful... If they wanna be up there next season they need a complete clean out - even RvP ain't as good as he was."
Noah Maddison says: "A 2-1 win for Hull. United need to prove themselves to critics and supporters whilst Hull have nothing to play for."
Mohammed Usmaan says: "Good to see Lawrence and Wilson start but I think Man United are going to lose which will sum up their season. I'm going for a 2-1 Hull City win. Still I hope Giggs comes on!!!!"
John Gramstadt says: "I think Utd will shade this 2-1 Fellaini and Valencia with the strikes before Long halves the deficit in front of a subdued crowd. This is important for Utd who need to build before an important summer. They will finish 7th but I reckon they'll improve to 5th next year!"
Harry Allman says: "A perfect night would of course be goals for all of our outgoing heroes tonight! However not sure what the odds for that are! Going for a huge win with Hull having nothing to play for and a lot of United players trying to impress suitors for the summer!"
So, James Wilson and Tom Lawrence start for United, while Giggs and Vidic are named on the bench. Jakupovic makes his Premier League debut for Hull between the sticks. Thoughts to Chris.Burton@bskyb.com or @Burtytweets.
Hull City team: Jakupovic, Rosenior, Figueroa, Bruce, Davies, Meyler, Koren, Boyd, Quinn, Elmohamady, Long. Subs: Harper, Huddlestone, Livermore, Fryatt, Faye, Sagbo, Jelavic.
Man Utd team: De Gea, Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Buttner, Carrick, Fellaini, Kagawa, Januzaj, Lawrence, Wilson. Subs: Amos, Vidic, M. Keane, Mata, Giggs, Young, Van Persie.
He will have to step off the bench for that to happen, with it confirmed that Giggs and Vidic start among the substitutes.
Liam Taylor says: "I'm a Manchester United fan and I'm currently on my way to the game. I feel Manchester Utd need to win to prove themselves, not just as a club, as individual players. It's the last home game so impress the fans and critics and put a good performance out. I reckon Manchester United will win 2-0."
Cian Hughes says: "Tough to call this. Don't think United will get 3 points if I'm honest, I'm going 2-0 Hull."
You can also bet in-play throughout the evening at Skybet.com. United start as favourites at 30/100, with Hull 8/1 and the draw 9/2. You can get the Red Devils to win 3-0 Price Boosted to 10/1.
Can United end on a high in front of their own supporters? Can Vidic grab himself a goal? Will Hull spoil the party? Let me know your thoughts.
How do you see tonight's game going? Feel free to offer your opinion by contacting me direct at Chris.Burton@bskyb.com or @Burtytweets.
Hull City will be hoping to play their part in the occasion - as Steve Bruce returns to the home of his former employers - but they are already assured of a top flight standing next season and will have one eye on an FA Cup final date with Arsenal.
And what of Ryan Giggs? Will he be back in the dugout next season? Plenty of intriguing subplots then ahead of this midweek clash.
It promises to be an emotional night for at least one Red Devil, with long-serving defender Nemanja Vidic set to bid farewell to Old Trafford. There is, however, every chance that this could also be Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra's last outings at the Theatre of Dreams.
United will be looking to offer a positive response to their surprise setback against Sunderland on Saturday, in what will be their final home game of the 2013/14 campaign.
