Simon Kjaer’s last-gasp header grabbed a draw for AC Milan and a vital away goal in their 1-1 draw with Manchester United in the Europa League last 16 first leg.
Milan dominated the first half as Franck Kessie saw his fine volley ruled out by VAR for a handball, while Harry Maguire somehow missed a sitter from a yard out just before the break, shinning his effort onto the post.

Dan James missed another clear opportunity in the second half to extend United’s lead, and they were made to pay as Milan grabbed a deserved leveller on the balance of the game with Kjaer heading Rade Krunic’s corner past Dean Henderson, who got a touch to the effort and should have done better.
It means Milan take an away goal back to Italy for the second leg on March 18.
