United legend Cristiano Ronaldo fired the Red Devils into the lead in the first half after a wonderful assist from Bruno Fernandes.
However, United were reduced to 10 men before half-time as Aaron Wan-Bissaka was dismissed for a reckless challenge on Christopher Martins Pereira.
Young Boys rallied back in the second half and built more confidence as the Group F clash at the Wankdorf went on, with United under pressure from the Swiss side.
Nicolas Moumi Ngamaleu pulled back an important equaliser for Young Boys in the 66th minute.
Meschak Elia whipped in a cross from the right and Ngamaleu managed to beat Raphael Varane to the ball, with the Young Boys winger poking the ball past David de Gea.
Young Boys then snatched all three points deep into injury time thanks to a horrific backpass from Lingard, who came off the bench in the second half to replace Ronaldo.

The 28-year-old United player’s disastrous back-pass was intercepted by Jordan Siebatcheu, who expertly converted past De Gea to seal a memorable win for Young Boys.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was slammed by fans on Twitter after Young Boys mounted a successful comeback in the second half.
“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer really is holding Manchester United back,” one fan said.
Someone else posted: “If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was managing any other big team, he’d be fired with this performance.”
While another Twitter user wrote: “We need to talk about saying goodbye to Lingard and Solskjaer.”
And a fourth added: “This Solskjaer experiment won't work, the sooner we accept this, the better we can deal with nights like this.”
