It’s the end of an era in east London as West Ham United play their final ever game at Upton Park when they welcome Manchester United for Tuesday’s sole Premier League clash.

After 112 years at the Boleyn Ground, the Hammers will be moving to the Olympic Stadium from next season and hope to go out on a high as they aim to keep alive their hopes of reaching the Europa League next term.

Louis van Gaal’s side are far from in the mood to play the respecting visitors though. Needing a win to keep their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League in their hands at the expense of rivals Manchester City, the Red Devils will be desperate to grab all three points in what is sure to be an emotional night. Follow all the action with Sportsmail as it happens.

MICHAEL WALKER: Exit main reception at the Boleyn Ground, walk through the front gate and turn right on to Green Street, London E13. You’re off on the new West Ham way.

Head past Ken’s cafe, Percy Ingle’s bakery, up beyond Upton Park Tube station and keep going. United Halal Meats is on the right, Asian Bridal on the left, just before Mobeena’s — ‘Probably the best kebabs in the world’.

After 20 minutes you’re at the top of Green Street and looking at a First World War memorial beside the police station, a reminder of the West Ham United players and fans who were killed in action in the Great War. ‘West Ham Pals’ they were called, in the Essex Regiment.
