Prior to the game, in his pre-match press conference, Giggs spoke of bringing back the club's long-standing book of ethics following David Moyes' disastrous spell in charge, per Ian Herbert of The Independent:
It has been a frustrating season for everyone. We win together and we lose together. These four remaining games I want to put smiles on faces and bring the intensity back. I want to see goals. tackles, players taking on players. I want to see the passion that should come with being a Manchester United player.
With that being said, all eyes were on Giggs first team selection, which included a few surprises for the eager United fan:
