Manchester City suffered a surprise 2-1 defeat at home to Lyon in their opening Champions League Group F fixture.
Lyon took the lead in the 26th minute through Maxwel Cornet, who drove home after Fabian Delph made a hash of clearing a Nabil Fekir cross from the left.
With the suspended City manager Pep Guardiola forced to watch from the stands, Fekir the made it 2-0 to the French side in the 43rd minute with a sweetly struck drive after being set-up by Memphis Depay.
It could have been 3-0 when Depay hit the post on the hour but after that let-off City earned themselves a lifeline through Bernardo Silva, who produced a smart finish after a superb jinking run from substitute Leroy Sane.
Manchester united on the other hand enjoyed a comfortable 3-0 win against Swiss side Young boys thanks to a brace from Paul Pogba and a third goal by Anthony Martial.
