2. Football – Premier League: This time Liverpool tamed Arsenal

No third consecutive victory for Arsenal against Liverpool. Despite the opening scoring of Alexandre Lacazette against the course of the game, the Reds quickly materialized their very clear domination by reversing the situation by Sadio Mané and Andy Robertson. Lacazette missed the opportunity to equalize by losing his duel against Allison and rookie Diogo Jota sealed the logical success of the formation of Jürgen Klopp at the end of the match (3-1). Liverpool signed their third victory in three matches and are in second place in the standings, three points ahead of Aston Villa, fourth, who had swept Fulham a little earlier (0-3). The two clubs will face each other this weekend.

Tampa Bay is finally holding its second Stanley Cup. Eliminated to everyone’s surprise in the first round of the play-offs last season, the Lightning assumed its favorite status to the end by dominating the Dallas Stars (2-0) in Game 6 to afford a fourth victory in the series (4-2), and the trophy at the same time. Brayden Point and Blake Coleman scored the goals of the decisive success for the Florida franchise.
