Manchester United secured a 1-0 pre-season victory over Lyon as Donny van de Beek made a triumphant return from his knee injury.The Dutchman scored just minutes after coming off the bench, capitalizing on an excellent cross by Dan Gore.

Another notable return for United was Jonny Evans, who put in a solid performance in the second half after signing a short-term contract with the club.

The match at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh started with a flurry of opportunities for Manchester United. Antony had a chance to score but shot straight at Lyon keeper Anthony Lopes instead of attempting a dink. Amad Diallo also had two chances, with one shot going over the bar and another forcing a save from Lopes.

The return of Jonny Evans to United on a short-term deal was a major talking point before the game, and he impressed with his performance after coming off the bench in the second half.

Overall, it was a successful pre-season outing for Manchester United, with Van de Beek’s goal and the promising displays from returning players.
