The Red Devils were quite poor against Sunderland on Saturday, unable to muster any real attack of note, with the Black Cats, desperate for survival, deservedly walking away with a 1-0 victory.
Ryan Giggs suffered his first loss in the process as interim manager, while the fractured attacking display showed it might not have been all David Moyes' fault, with even an attack-minded man like Giggs unable to inspire a smooth performance going forward.
"After the great performance we gave [against Norwich, a 4-0 win in Giggs' first game as manager], it was a bit flat," the Welshman told MUTV after the tame defeat. "The preparations were the same as last week, the lads were training well and I changed things around a bit.
"That concentration and quality just wasn't there, but credit to Sunderland who are on a good run. When teams are fighting for their lives you need to be at your best, and we weren't."
The game doesn't hold too much importance in terms of the league table, with Manchester United in seventh place, six points behind Tottenham, who are a position above them, while Hull City are safe from relegation.
The match will witness two managers who are former teammates, though, with Giggs asking Hull's Steve Bruce for advice after being instated as the interim manager.
"I have spoken to Brucie and Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer], two ex-teammates," Giggs said. "One has been in management for 15 or so years and the other has not been in management so long. It was great as both gave me different bits of advice.
"Will I take any notice of Brucie? I won't on Tuesday night! With Brucie, I spoke to him about picking the team. I said to the press that the hardest thing was leaving people out, so he gave me a bit of advice on that."
The match will also present United an opportunity to sign off from Old Trafford on a high, after a season which saw the home fans witness too many defeats.
"It's our last game at home this season and we want to have a decent farewell in front of our fans, with a good game and a victory," Juan Mata wrote in his blog. "They have given us a remarkable support throughout the last year and that shows the greatness of the club and the loyalty of our fans in the good and, in particular, the bad moments."
Bruce, whose side suffered a 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday, will want to ensure none of his big players pick up any injury, with Hull's attention turning towards the FA Cup final against Arsenal in ten days' time.
"There will be a few changes [to the side]," Bruce said. "The people who need to play can now get a bit of football under their belts -- it would be awful to put players in at Wembley who haven't played much football.
"It's a chance for me to give a few of the lads who have been on the bench in recent weeks a chance to play a game or two.
Team news: Manchester United: Wayne Rooney, who missed the 1-0 loss to Sunderland due to illness and injury, is again unlikely to feature along with Jonny Evans. Rafael, though, could return after training this week.
Hull City: James Chester, the former United youth player, has been ruled out for the season with a hamstring injury, while Sone Aluko is also sidelined with an ankle problem.
