The Holland international scored his first goal for the club to break Albion's hearts just as they looked like securing victory. Saido Berahino had fired them 2-1 ahead with his seventh goal of the season in the second half after Marouane Fellaini bagged his first goal for United.
Fellaini's goal had cancelled out Stephane Sessegnon's wonderful opener at The Hawthorns and the Baggies, who move up to 14th in the English Premier League, were good value for a point.
The result means United boss Louis van Gaal has still not won away from Old Trafford with his side sixth in the table. Ben Foster missed out for West Brom after suffering a calf injury in training and was replaced by Boaz Myhill in the Baggies goal.
Adnan Janujaz made his first start of the season for United with Radamel Falcao left on the bench.
Phil Jones returned as Paddy McNair struggled with a hamstring problem along with fellow injury victim Antonio Valencia.
