Fernando Torres scored his first Serie A goal as AC Milan fought back from two goals down to draw at Empoli.

The Spain international made his first start for Milan since moving from Chelsea on a two-year loan deal.

Lorenzo Tonelli and Manuel Pucciarelli gave the home side the lead before Torres scored with a looping header.

Keisuke Honda equalised for Milan with a drilled shot, before Empoli's Mirko Valdifiori was sent off in the 86th minute for a second bookable offence.
