Kylian Mbappe winner sends Monaco back to top of Ligue 1

Kylian Mbappe
Kylian Mbappe has scored 23 goals in all competitions for Monaco this season

Teenager Kylian Mbappe scored the winner as Monaco beat Lyon to return to the top of Ligue 1 on Sunday.

Radamel Falcao's opener for the visitors was cancelled out when Lucas Tousart headed in for Lyon.

But Mbappe, 18, scored his 13th league goal of the season to keep Monaco on course for a first title since 2000.

The Red and Whites are level on points with Paris St-Germain, but boast a far superior goal difference and have a game in hand on the French champions.
