Youri Tielemans insists Monaco must “fight for each other” as they try to escape the Ligue 1 drop zone under Thierry Henry’s guidance.
Henry’s appointment as manager in October has so far failed to spark the necessary upturn in results at Stade Louis II, with the club second bottom of the division.
After last weekend’s derby with neighbours Nice was postponed due to security issues in France, Les Monegasques return to action at high-flying Lyon on Sunday night with an opportunity to record a third successive away win.

Belgium midfielder Tielemans admits his team are in urgent need of points but feels they can take confidence from recent victories at Caen and Amiens.
“We know our situation, we need points very quickly so we must show a good mentality and fight for each other,” said the 21-year-old, according to the club website.
“It is true that Lyon is a team that produces some very good matches and worse ones, but we go in with the idea to win even if we know that it will not be easy.
“These recent victories away have done us a lot of good and we must succeed in repeating these performances. “There is a lot of hope in this group. We know that we can do a lot better.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
