Scott McTominay opened the scoring with a terrific strike on the stroke of half-time.
But, in the end, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side didn’t do enough to win it and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang equalised for the visitors in the second half.
The Red Devils didn’t have too long to dissect their performance as they headed to the Netherlands to face AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League.
United won their opening group stage match against Astana with youngster Mason Greenwood grabbing the only goal of the game.

A trip to the Netherlands posed problems for Solskjaer’s side, though.
With the roof having collapsed in AZ Alkmaar's stadium, their home matches were being played in the Cars Jeans Stadion in Den Haag.
That brought with it an artificial pitch - something that Solskkaer wasn’t particularly excited about.
“I’m surprised they’ve chosen to play on this pitch when I’ve looked at it,” he said. ”I’m used to it from Norway. It’s not the best I’ve seen.
“It’s one of the worst ones I’ve seen for a long while. We’ve al got standards ack home in Norway anyway. It’s safe, I’m not saying it’s not. It’s not the newest.
“It’s just on the floor so on the carpet more or less, so when you pull the grass up you do that loads, there’s more bounce.”
That might explain a pretty uneventful first half played out between the two sides.
In fact, the only highlight of the night was Daniel James being smaller than his mascot.
Whoever put the tallest mascot with one of United’s smallest players is a genius.
But that’s how bad this United side are right now. We’re talking about the height of a mascot at half-time, instead of an impressive performance.News Now - Sport News
