The 2022/23 season can only be described as a success for Manchester United. After finishing sixth and trophyless in the previous campaign, Erik ten Hag inspired the Red Devils to third in the Premier League — returning them to the Champions League fold — while they lifted the League Cup (their first trophy since 2017) and reached the FA Cup final.

Already, United are off to a positive start this summer, with an experimental lineup beating Leeds United 2-0 in their opening friendly — a game in which Mason Mount made his debut for the club.

In Lyon, the calibre of opponent goes up another notch for Man Utd. The French side finished seventh in Ligue 1 last season while also reaching the semi-finals of the Coupe de France. With a squad including the likes of Anthony Lopes, Nicolas Tagliafico, Alexandre Lacazette and Rayan Cherki, Lyon will certainly provide a stern test for the 20-time English champions.

Man Utd vs Lyon match stats

Just as was the case against Leeds, Man Utd are likely to field a different XI in each half against Lyon. One player who will be looking to make an impression is Mason Mount, who made his debut for the club last time out. Mount arrives following a 195-game spell with Chelsea which yielded 33 goals and three trophies, including the Champions League title.

The one to watch for Lyon is undoubtedly Lacazette, with the former Arsenal striker scoring 31 goals in 39 games across all competitions last season to remind us just how much quality he still possesses.
