Ryan Giggs has placed himself alongside Nemanja Vidic on the bench for Manchester United's final home game of the season - and potentially his final game for the club - against Hull City.

Giggs has opted to play a young side for the final game of this campaign at Old Trafford, with Tom Lawrence and James Wilson both being handed their debuts.

Vidic, who will depart for pastures new at Inter this summer, is expected to play a part at some point during the night.
Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra are not included in the squad amid speculation about their respective United futures.

Robin van Persie also takes place on the bench, alongside Juan Mata and Ashley Young - but Wayne Rooney will not play a part after he missed the weekend defeat to Sunderland with a combination of illness and injury.

For Steve Bruce's side, goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic makes his Premier League debut while Nikica Jelavic, who is cup tied for the upcoming FA Cup final against Arsenal, is on the bench.
