Manchester United is playing their first match since David Moyes was dismissed as manager and replaced by Ryan Giggs, who is serving as a player-manager.

Giggs, who has played for United since 1991 and will serve only as manager during today’s match, entered Old Trafford to a roaring applause (via NBC Sports Network).
