    Time:90'
    • Manchester United
    • Hull City
    • FULL TIME: Manchester United 3-1 Hull City. Thanks for joining us.
    • 90+3' Shots raining in! First Buttner then Valencia blocked. United finishing on a high. Time almost up...
    • 90+2' Giggs takes and it’s arrowing for the top corner but it’s a great fingertip save from Jakupovic!
    • 90+1' Giggs finds Kagawa with a long ball and the Japanese is brought down by Figueroa. Free kick…
    • 90' We have three added minutes here at Old Traford.
    • 89' Januzaj goes tumbling from a Meyler challenge. Looked fairly innocuous although the Belgian is upset.
    • 88' Almost an own goal from Smalling! He diverts a cross straight into De Gea’s arms from point blank!
    • 87' STAT: Robin van Persie scores his first PL goal at Old Trafford since the 2-2 draw against Fulham on 9 February. Man United are unbeaten in all 16 previous PL home matches van Persie has scored in (W14-D2).
    • 86' Surely all over for Hull City now. Decent finish into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.
    • 85' GOAL United! And it’s Robin van Persie on his return. Assist by Ryan Giggs.
    • 84' Only six minutes remain for Ryan Giggs to secure his second win as United manager. Poor ball from Kagawa meant for Fellaini.
    • 83'
    • 82' Shot from Van Persie but it’s straight at Jakupovic.
    • 81' SHOTS: Man Utd 8-2 Hull City
    • 80' Hull City sub: Elmohamady off for Livermore
    • 79' End to end stuff. United break again through Januzaj and his pass finds Van Persie who fires just wide! You often see him put those away.
    • 78' Dangerous cross from Elmohamady and Vidic does really well to head clear the danger. It comes back out to Meyler and his fierce shot is beaten away be De Gea! Not over yet.
    • 76' Giggs rolling back the years with a 1-2 off Fellaini. He runs the length of the pitch and gets in a telling cross that is scrambled behind for a corner.
    • 75' Good move from Hull and a dangerous cross from Elmohamady is cut out by Buttner.
    • 74' Januzaj again springing down the wing. He has plenty of options but delivers a really disappointing ball that is easily cut out. He’s been brilliant tonight though.
    • 73' Kagawa plays in Giggs who shoots at goal. His shot is blocked by a trio of sprawling Fratt and the United manager shouts for a penalty. Would have been harsh.
    • 72' Ryan Giggs comes on for Man United. He is the first player/manager to play in a PL match since Stuart McCall in Bradford's 1-0 home defeat against Everton on 11 November 2000.
    • 71' Danger all over the field now for United with the two debutants off. Haven’t they done well!
    • 70' Giggs is on for Lawrence.
    • 69' Januzaj again runs at the Hull defence and crosses to Fellaini. It’s just too far for him and he screws his shot wide.
    • 68' Hull coming back into this, stringing some attacking moves together inside the United half. They must be careful as they were almost stung on the counter.
    • 67' STAT: James Wilson becomes only the second player to score twice on his PL debut for Man United. The other was Ruud van Nistelrooy in the 3-2 home win against Fulham on 19 August 2001.
    • 66' Now Ryan Giggs is warming himself up on the touchline…
    • 65' Perhaps a little harsh on Wilson, on a hat-trick on debut. Who is Robin van Persie anyway?
    • 64' That came out of nothing for Hull. Practically their first effort on goal in the match. Game on.
    • 63' United sub: Van Persie on for Wilson.
    • 62' GOAL Hull! And it’s a spectacular strike from Fryatt from outside the box!
    • 61' Wilson must be on could nine after a double on debut. Wayne Rooney smiling on in the stands.
    • 60' GOAL United! And it’s Wilson again after Jakupovic saved Fellaini’s initial effort. Great work from Januzaj again.
    • 59' Dangerous cross from Januzaj aimed at Fellaini but a good covering header from Bruce.
    • 58' Chants from the United fans of “Giggs will tear you apart again.” Wonder if we’ll see him bring himself on…
    • 57' Claim for a penalty for a Davies hand ball but he didn’t even see Vidic head it onto his arm from behind him!
    • 56' Another sublime Januzaj run. He waltzes into the box but it’s a great tackle by Meyler to force a corner.
    • 55' Likewise for Elmohamady down the other end. Does well to get to the byline and get his cross in but straight at De Gea.
    • 54' Januzaj terrorising Rosenior again down the right but his cross is a poor one and easy for Jakupovic.
    • 53' United continue to comprehensively dominate possession. As has been the case all season, their problem has been with that final killer pass. When will we see Juan Mata?
    • 52' TOTAL PASSES: Man Utd 393 – 242 Hull City
    • 51' Januzaj lets fly on goal with his left foot and forces a decent save from Jakupovic, who then claims the resultant corner.
    • 50' STAT: Manchester United have gone on to lose points (drawing or losing) after being in the lead in a home match on only two occasions this season. Only Crystal Palace and Manchester City (both 1 time) have done so less often.
    • 49' Raking cross from Januzaj but to nobody in particular and Jakupovic claims easily.
    • 48' A bright start for United. Almost added to their lead immediately.
    • 47' Januzaj crosses into Wilson and it’s a half chance but he hooks it wide.
    • 46' Meyler brings down Lawrence and it’s an immediate free kick to United. Lawrence blasts it into the wall. Meyler booked for his troubles.
    • 45' Hull City subs: Fryatt and Sagbo off for Rosenior and Long.
    • We’re back underway here at Old Trafford. Can United add to their score and will we see Ryan Giggs spring any more surprises?
    • HALF TIME: Manchester United 1-0 Hull City.
    • 45+1' United caught in possession. Quinn clears to Boyd. Smalling fouls Meyler. Free kick and one chance to bomb it into the box for Hull.
    • 45' Shane Long flagged offside. We have two added minutes here.
    • 44' A warning for United that Hull remain a threat on the break. Been fairly comfortable otherwise.
    • 43' Buttner caught and Hull break quickly through Elmohamady with Long waiting but his cross is well cut out by Vidic and Buttner breathes a sigh of relief.
    • 42' Dangerous cross from Buttner aimed at Fellaini but Jakupovic plucks it out of the air easily enough.
    • 41' Foul by Boyd on Carrick but only a free kick. United build again, wanting another before the break.
    • 40' The free kick is taken and Elmohamady is back onto the pitch. Fit enough to take a resultant throw.
    • 39' Meanwhile, Elmohamady down receiving treatment. He gets to his feet and goes off.
    • 38' Very clumsy challenge from Fellaini on Quinn and he rightly goes into the book.
    • 37' Phil Jones has left the ground with his arm in a sling on his way to hospital. At the moment it’s precautionary but we’ll know more later.
    • 36' A very uncharacteristic pass from Carrick. Aimlessly forward and easily gathered by Jakupovic.
    • 35' A little more urgency from Hull. They can’t sit back for the rest of the game now.
    • 34' James Wilson is the first player to score on his PL debut for Man United since Nick Powell on 15 September 2012 (4-0 win vs Wigan Athletic).
    • 33' Now young Lawrence wants a piece of it. He runs at the Hull defence but is stopped on the edge of the box.
    • 32' STAT: That was Fellaini’s first assist of the season.
    • 31' Well Ryan Giggs’ decision to start Wilson now seems entirely justified. Good finish from close range.
    • 30' GOAL UNITED! Januzaj swings it in, Fellaini heads it back across goal and it’s James Wilson with his first United goal.
    • 29' United looking for openings down the right through Valencia and Januzaj but a bit too predictable. Januzaj draws a foul off Rosenior. Free kick and a chance.
    • 28' It was actually Meyler who seemed to nudge Januzaj in the box and send him off balance but the challenge from Figueroa looked fine.
    • 26' Januzaj again goes tumbling in the box, looking for a penalty off Figueroa. Referee unmoved.
    • 25' Even Smalling getting forward in search of this break through. United lose the ball and there’s momentarily a chance for a Hull break but they give the ball away.
    • 24' STAT: Vidic comes on for his 107th and final PL match at Old Trafford for Man United. His first PL home appearance was also as a substitute, in a 4-2 win against Fulham on 4 February 2006.
    • 23' Hull giving United plenty of possession and happy to sit deep. Going to be tough for this new look team to break down.
    • 22' Amazingly, United were playing for five minutes without a stoppage in play for Vidic to come on. But when he did, the United fans gave him a rousing reception.
    • 21' Man Utd sub: Vidic on for Jones.
    • 20' United still down to ten men but dominating possession. Giggs furious. He wants the change.
    • 19' Indeed Vidic is about to come on...
    • 17' Looks like it is the end for Jones and that means Vidic could come on for his final home game.
    • 16' Jones hits the turf clutching his shoulder after a challenge from Figueroa from the corner. He goes off for treatment.
    • 15' United dominating the midfield exchanges. Shot from Lawrence deflected over the bar.
    • 14' Carrick almost finds Fellaini in space for a shooting opportunity but it’s a good foot in to prevent the effort.
    • 13' Ball over the top aimed for Long but Jones heads clear.
    • 11' Hull finally with a spell of possession but they’re forced all the way back. United looking well organised.
    • 10' POSSESSION: Man Utd 78%-22% Hull City
    • 9' This time Fellaini tries his luck but it’s wide. Buttner and Valencia getting forward well at every opportunity.
    • 8' Kagawa tries his luck from distance but it’s well over debutant Jakupovic’s bar.
    • 7' First threat from Hull as Long almost played in but Smalling deals with the danger.
    • 6' Valencia and Januzaj link well but Figueroa across with a good covering challenge.
    • 5' Foul by Valencia and Hull finally have some breathing space. Back come United immediately though.
    • 4' United certainly all over Hull at the moment. Januzaj causing plenty of problems.
    • 3' PENALTY SHOUT! Januzaj now goes tumbling in the box under a challenge from Figueroa. Looked a definite penalty but only a corner given.
    • 2' CHANCE! Januzaj finds Fellaini on the far post and he heads back across to Wilson. It’s a chance but Alex Bruce does excellently to block his shot.
    • 1' United with plenty of possession early on. Hull have hardly had a touch of it yet. But that has been the way at Old Trafford recently and it hasn’t always worked out well!
    • Referee Craig Pawson blows the whistle to get us underway here. It will be fascinating to see how Giggsy’s fledglings fare up front on their debuts.
    • 19.40 Five minutes to kick-off at Old Trafford. Match odds: Manchester United 4/11, Draw 9/2, Hull 9/1.
    • 19.35 Manchester United’s last six Premier League games have seen them either score four and win or fail to score and lose (W3 L3).
    • 19.30 STAT: The Red Devils have won their last six league matches against Hull City, including all five Barclays Premier League clashes.
    • 19.25
    • 19.20 Steve Bruce: "I honestly thought over the months we'd be in a relegation fight but if we're being totally honest we haven't really been involved at all, which is a testament to the players. It's just remarkable...to stay in the Premier League, get to the FA Cup final and get into Europe is one hell of an achievement for everyone concerned. It's been a fantastic journey and it's the icing on the cake for the club itself. The supporters must be thinking all their dreams have come true."
    • 19.15 Former United favourite Steve Bruce has also rung the changes with Premier League survival guaranteed. Stephen Quinn, George Boyd and Robert Koren get some much-needed game time with Yannick Sagbo and Matt Fryatt on the bench.
    • 19.10 Ryan Giggs: "Of course, the perfect scenario is me coming on and scoring a goal, the winning goal, and hopefully everyone will be happy but it doesn't always work like that. We'll have to wait and see what happens on the night."
    • 19.05 So Ryan Giggs has sprung a surprise by opting for youth and handing James Wilson and Tom Lawrence their Premier League debuts and naming himself on the bench alongside Nemanja Vidic as Rio Ferdinand misses out.
    • 19.00 TEAMS: Manchester United: De Gea, Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Büttner, Carrick, Fellaini, Kagawa, Januzaj, Lawrence, Wilson. SUBS: Amos, Vidic, M. Keane, Mata, Giggs, Young, Van Persie /// Hull City: Jakupovic, Rosenior, Figueroa, Bruce, Davies, Meyler, Koren, Boyd, Quinn, Elmohamady, Long. SUBS: Harper, Huddlestone, Livermore, Fryatt, Faye, Sagbo, Jelavic.
    • 18.55
    • 18.50 Tonight’s match marks the final home for fan favourite Nemanja Vidic, who is off to Inter Milan in the summer. It could also be the last home appearance for another former skipper in Rio Ferdinand but Wayne Rooney is unlikely to feature due to the double-whammy of a stomach bug and groin injury. Team news shortly.
    • 18.45 Hello and welcome to our LIVE coverage of Tuesday night’s Premier League clash between Manchester United and Hull City from Old Trafford. Kick-off 19.45 BST.
