Preview: WBA v United

Sub-plots: Although a dead rubber on paper, this game means everything to anyone associated with United as Sir Alex prepares to take charge of his last-ever match as manager. Club legend and 'Class of 1992' graduate Scholes should also make his final appearance before hanging up his playing boots.

Did you know? Incredibly, Sunday’s fixture is the 1,500th competitive fixture during Sir Alex's reign.

Quote/unquote: “We've got to win the game on Sunday. West Brom will want to win their last home game but I don't want to lose my last game, that's for sure.” - Sir Alex

Referee: Michael Oliver will be the man in the middle. The Northumberland-based official has taken charge of 38 games this season, dishing out 104 yellow cards and one red in the process. United fans last saw him during the 1-1 draw with Swansea at the Liberty Stadium in December.

Rivals watch: Chelsea host David Moyes' Everton at Stamford Bridge while Manchester City host Norwich. All matches kick off at exactly the same time, 14:00 BST.
