Manchester United's chances of progressing in the Europa League are in the balance after they threw away the lead to go down 2-1 at FC Midtjylland in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie.
 
Memphis Depay's close-range finish put United in front in the 37th minute, but Pione Sisto - capitalising on a Michael Carrick error - equalised seven minutes later, and a fine strike from Midtjylland substitute Paul Onuachu with 13 minutes to go then handed the Danish champions victory on the night.

Red Devils goalkeeper Sergio Romero produced a series of fine saves after replacing David de Gea, who was forced to pull out of the first XI having sustained an injury in the warm-up, while Jesse Lingard was unlucky not to restore United's lead at 1-1 as his effort hit the bar.

At the start of the second half Lingard blasted into the stand and - after Romero saved another Sisto shot - Mata headed wide.

Lingard was then inches away from putting United back in front as his volley from Ander Herrera's cross struck the woodwork - although they were soon thanking Romero again, with him brilliantly tipping Onuachu's header over the bar.

Sisto looped a shot wide and it was then Onuachu who took centre-stage, firing in a delightfully-placed strike from the edge of the area, with United having done little to stop him.
