Match ends, Lyon 2, St Etienne 2.
Lyon overcame the first-half dismissal of defender Lindsay Rose to draw with St Etienne and replace Paris-St Germain at the top of Ligue 1.
The home side went ahead in the Rhone Valley derby when Clinton N'Jie fired in but Rose was then sent off for handball and ex-Leeds winger Max Gradel levelled from the penalty spot.
Romain Hamouma raced through to put St Etienne 2-1 up just before the break.
But a near-post header from Christophe Jallet put Lyon top on goal difference.
However, defending champions PSG, who won 3-1 at Nice on Saturday, have the benefit of a game in hand on the leaders.
