Where to Watch
Kick-off is set for 7.45pm BST. Live coverage of the match will be available on Sky Sports 1 and 1 HD. Radio commentary will be available on BBC Radio 5 live.
Manchester United visit Upton Park for a historic clash, as it will be the last at the famous old ground. The Hammers are moving to the Olympic Stadium, which will be their new home from next season. The Boleyn Ground has been the home of West Ham United since 1904.
Apart from it being an emotional night for the east London club, it is also a crucial one for both teams as they fight for a place in Europe next season. Manchester United need to win both their remaining games against the Hammers on Tuesday and against Bournemouth on the final day to guarantee Champions League football next season. West Ham are fighting for the fifth place and the Europa League if they win both their games against the Red Devils and away to Stoke City.
Both the managers will be going all out for a win making it an exciting prospect for all neutrals. Louis van Gaal's job as manager is on the line. A top four place and a possible FA Cup triumph could keep him at Old Trafford for another season, while Slaven Bilic will be keen to have European football when they start life at their new stadium.
What Managers Say
Louis van Gaal: We have a lot of respect to West Ham United. We are not trying to spoil their party. But we do need the three points, that is different. It will be a big night and an emotional night for them. It [playing the final game at the Boleyn Ground] is a negative for us. We have to play against an opponent who says goodbye to the stadium so they don't want to lose.
Slaven Bilic: "With greatest respect to all clubs Manchester United is Manchester United, it's a perfect game for such an historic occasion. I think it would be a great night. It's not about the opponent, it's about West Ham and Upton Park, but Manchester United makes it a little bit special."
