Preview: United v Hull

Date, time and coverage:

Tuesday 6 May, 19:45 BST. The match will not be shown live on TV in the UK. Follow ManUtd.com's live blog and MUTV Online's radio commentary.

Form guide: United head into Tuesday’s match with Hull on the back of a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Sunderland, who clinched a first victory at Old Trafford since 1968 thanks to Sebastian Larsson’s accurate first half volley.

Ins and outs: Ryan Giggs told MUTV on Monday that Wayne Rooney is "struggling" to be fit for Tuesday's game.

Giggs could also name himself on the bench ahead of what could be his final playing appearance at Old Trafford. Hull will be without ex-United players James Chester and Robbie Brady, as well as Paul McShane and Joe Dudgeon. Sone Aluko is also likely to miss out.
