The Baggies' defeat to Arsenal on Monday night left the club a point from safety with just two games remaining.
Greening believes West Brom performed admirably against The Gunners and is chasing a repeat display at Old Trafford.
The midfielder acknowledged it will be a special occasion for him this weekend but he concedes it is a game West Brom must not lose.
"We have to get something from Old Trafford now," said Greening.
"It is a hard place to go to and all the other teams fighting against relegation will be looking to see how we get on.
"But if we can put on a similar performance to the one against Arsenal and hopefully sneak a goal, who knows? We'd take that."
West Brom's trip to Old Trafford is live on Sky Sports 1 and Greening hopes the evening kick-off will be to the team's advantage.
He added: "With the United game being later, we will go into the match knowing how the other teams have got on.
"In some ways it is a difficult position but, as far as I am concerned, it is all in our own hands now.
"It would be ideal if Crystal Palace and Southampton drew. We've already discussed that."
