After picking up the on the flank, the 19-year-old jinked inside before laying up Kessie to slot in the corner.

It came after a quiet first-half for the youngster, who put in a few silky touches but struggled to get into the game.

Eyebrows were raised when Diallo arrived from Atalanta for a fee which could rise to £37m last year.

The winger was initially included in United’s Under-23s squad, but was quickly promoted to the first team following some excellent performances.

And he made an instant impact off the bench to score his first ever goal for United against AC Milan in the Europa League.

Amad broke the defensive line to ghost onto a clever Bruno Fernandes through-ball, and proceeded to lob Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma with a header while facing away to goal.

The goal was reminiscent to one Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez scored for United against Stoke in 2010 – and a perfect way for Amad to announce himself to Red Devils fans.

The Old Trafford faithful will be looking for him to have a brilliant campaign next term – along with new boy Jadon Sancho.
