Manchester United conceded an injury-time equaliser to AC Milan in the Europa League round-of-16 first leg at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side earned a reprieve when Franck Kessie smashed the visitors into an early lead, only for VAR to rule it out for handball.

Harry Maguire hit a post at the other end from close range, from a Bruno Fernandes flick-on, but it was all square at the break.

How did Amad's header compare to this effort by Javier Hernandez at Stoke?

Substitute Amad headed the Reds in front from a brilliant through ball by Fernandes in the 50th minute and Daniel James passed up a good opportunity to double the lead.

In the dying seconds, Simon Kjaer headed past Dean Henderson from a corner to score a precious away goal ahead of next Thursday's second leg at the San Siro.
