Man Utd half-time player ratings: Lisandro Martinez superb, Mason Mount misfires vs Lyon

Man Utd half-time player ratings: Lisandro Martinez superb, Mason Mount misfires vs Lyon

They're taking on Lyon at Murrayfield in Edinburgh.

Manchester United are continuing their pre-season preparations with a warm-up match against Lyon in Scotland.

United are taking on the French side at Murrayfield in Edinburgh in their second warm-up match, having beaten Leeds 2-0 in their opening pre-season friendly on Wednesday.

United boss Erik ten Hag named two changes to the starting XI that beat Leeds in Oslo. Tom Heaton and Omari Forson dropped out of the starting XI, with Matej Kovar and Antony coming into the side.

Mason Mount was handed his second start for the club following his £55m move from Chelsea earlier this month.

Donny van de Beek was named on the bench alongside Jonny Evans, who has signed a short-term deal with United for their pre-season schedule.

Man Utd half-time player ratings vs Lyon

Matej Kovar – 5

One nervy moment when he put Varane under pressure with a risky pass out but was otherwise solid. Looked confident with the ball at his feet.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 5

Quiet first half. Solid defensively but could have done more going forward.

Raphael Varane – 6

Solid in defence. Made an important clearance with his head to stop a dangerous Lyon counter attack.

Lisandro Martinez – 8

United's best player in the first half. Won possession on a number of occasions and helped set up an attack with a marauding run up the pitch, ending up in the opposition's penalty area.

Alvaro Fernandez – 5

Given a tough test against Brazilian winger Jeffinho. Did well enough for most of the half but almost gave away a penalty late on.

Hannibal – 6

Not as impressive a performance as against Leeds but still did well. Provided energy in midfield and set up Diallo for an early chance with a lovely dummy. Lucky to escape a card late in the half for a rash challenge.

Kobbie Mainoo – 7

Another promising performance from the midfielder. Kept the ball moving and made a huge block to deny Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette.

Antony – 5

Looked bright early on but faded as the half wore on. Could have done better with a shot that went straight at the goalkeeper.

Mason Mount – 5

Made a mess of a chance inside the six yard box but should have been given a better pass by Sancho. Fired a free-kick straight into the wall later in the half before wasting another chance - shooting over the bar from just outside the area. Ten Hag will want to see more quality from his new signing in those positions.

Amad Diallo – 6

Had several chances to score in the opening minutes of the half but was unable to take advantage. Showed good energy winning the ball back on several occasions but lacked quality at the final moment, as did others.

Jadon Sancho – 6

A much better performance than against Leeds. Set up Antony early on but the Brazilian shot straight at the goalkeeper. Was involved in another chance for Mount later in the half but could have provided a better pass for his England teammate. Still looks hesitant at times but has shown signs of improvement.
