His goal turned out to be the game’s deciding factor, continuing Manchester United’s winning streak after their 2-0 triumph against Leeds United the previous week. The game was played at Edinburgh’s BT Murrayfield.

Manchester United’s manager, Erik ten Hag, made two alterations to the starting eleven from when they defeated Leeds in Norway earlier in the season. Tom Heaton was replaced as the goalkeeper by Matej Kovar, and Antony, who had been injured, took Omari Forson’s place. Jonny Evans, a seasoned defender who recently agreed to a short-term contract with the organization, was included on the bench .

Former Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette and former Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso were in Lyon’s starting lineup for the first half under manager Laurent Blanc, a former Manchester United defender.

There were no goals scored in the game’s opening period. A customary Scottish welcome was extended to both teams on a bright afternoon in Edinburgh. Manchester United got off to a strong start and produced several early opportunities.

After receiving a well placed pass inside the box from Jadon Sancho, Antony, who was making his comeback from injury, saw Anthony Lopes, the goalkeeper for Lyon, parry his attempt. From the next corner, Raphael Varane then sent a header over the crossbar. Amad had a one-on-one opportunity as a result of United’s constant pressure, but he pulled his attempt wide of the far post. A few seconds later, after receiving a low cross from the active Antony, Amad once more put Lopes to the test with a strong shot.

Mason Mount, who was making his second Manchester United start, struggled to get going after Sancho made a fantastic through pass from Varane’s chipped ball as he tried to locate his fellow countryman. Lyon entered the game gradually after United made a solid start.

Lacazette, the captain of Lyon, threatened with a cross-corner strike that whizzed across the goalmouth and just missed its intended recipient. A deflection caused Jeffinho’s shot from within the box to go into the side-netting. Amin Sarr launched a hard shot at Matej Kovar’s goal, but Kobbie Mainoo bravely blocked it.

Manchester United’s new number 7 stepped up to take the ensuing free kick from 22 yards after Clinton Mata fouled Mason Mount. The Lyon defensive line stopped Mount’s low shot, and the ball was diverted to the Lyon goalkeeper.

Mount, who persisted in showcasing his abilities, again almost missed from a similar distance with a skillfully performed whipping effort. He and Amad worked well together as the opportunity approached. Even though United had played brilliantly, they were unfortunate not to have scored by halftime and were still tied with Lyon.

As planned before to the game, Erik ten Hag substituted all 10 outfield players during the second half. Jonny Evans was one of those players, making his first Manchester United appearance since 2015 while donning the number 27 shirt.

Another halftime replacement, Donny van de Beek, had an instant impact. After Marc Jurado’s throw-in, Dan Gore had incredible tenacity to maintain possession of the ball and then calmly crossed the ball from the right side into the penalty area. Van van Beek scored the game-changing goal after deftly guiding the ball past Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes.

With deft passing in the final third, Manchester United kept up the pressure. Joe Hugill attempted to direct the ball into the path of the charging Marc Jurado, but Mamadou Sarr stopped him. After a corner, Van van Beek attempted to loft a shot from the back post, but Lyon’s goalkeeper was unaffected.

Just after the hour mark, Lyon made 10 substitutions, leaving only Ivorian defender Sinaly Diomande on the field.

After a skillfully executed break down the left flank, Lyon’s replacement goalkeeper Remy Riou was immediately called upon to tip away a curling attempt from Isak Hansen-Aaroen.

Opportunities to score were few in the second half as Manchester United continued to dominate. The midfield partnership of Dan Gore and Fred was effective, with Gore standing out for his skillful positioning and standout performance. United maintained control of the game despite the few opportunities it had in the second half.
