Louis Van Gaal is said to be the man to be named the next in line, but before that stand-in leader, Giggs is hoping to return from sense of feel good factor about Old Trafford.
Sunderland  on the other hand are on fire and manager Gus Poyet is looking like he may have just pulled off the great escape having rescued his side from relegation if he can stay out of the drop zone over his final three matches.
Rafael and Robin Van Persie remain the only missing part of the Red Devils side while Steven Fletcher, Ki Sung-Yueng and Carlos Cuellar are all set to miss the match.
United could use another win to boost morale, but at the moment Sunderland are poised to take all they can get as their desperate attempt for survival in the top flight is almost complete.
United XI: De Gea; Jones, Evans, Vidic, Evra; Cleverly, Carrick; Mata, Rooney, Kagawa; Welbeck.
Sunderland XI: Mannone; Vergini, O'Shea, Brown, Alonso; Larsson, Cattermole, Colback; Johnson, Wickham, Borini.
