Ryan Giggs makes his first start for Manchester United since 28 January in tonight's crucial Champions League last-16 second leg tie against Olympiakos at Old Trafford.

United, under Sir Alex Ferguson's beleaguered successor David Moyes, have to overcome a two-goal deficit against the Greek side to progress to the quarter-finals of the competition.

Nemanja Vidic, who was sent of against Liverpool on Sunday, is not in the squad.

Such is the attacking squad that Moyes has chosen, there are no defenders on the bench.
