• Premier League : City and Liverpool on the run, Man U hits Chelsea
The draw of the calendar of Premier League had reserved a very big piece to the fans of football, they were not disappointed. Closing the first day of the English championship, Manchester United has literally corrected a Chelsea too naive, thanks to a double Rashford and two assists Pogba, for a final 4-0.
A river score that does not allow the Red Devils to take the lead of the standings because the neighbor and defending champion, Manchester City, has done better, passing five goals to Wesh Ham (0-5). And Sterling to take the lead in the scorers' standings after his hat-trick of the day.
For Liverpool, the campaign also starts without a hitch, since the Reds have made a mouthful of Norwich (4-1), as Tottenham, who has not trembled against Aston Villa (3-1) . The recovery was more complicated for Arsenal, who still brought back the three points of his trip to Newcastle (0-1).
• Ligue 1 : Lyon and PSG take the lead, OM and Monaco slip
Another country, another shock, with a Monaco - Lyon that promised a lot in opening the Ligue 1. But against the young shoots Monaco, which is reduced to ten after half an hour of play, the Gones have not done in the lace: three goals for nothing, and a place of co-leader of Ligue 1 which says a lot about the goals of OL this season.
Sylvinho's men share first place with ... PSG. Without Neymar, waiting to start and vilified by a part of the Parisian public, the outgoing champion did not have to force his talent to get rid of Nimes (3-0). And behind the duo, Angers was invited temporarily on the podium by signing a very nice success against Bordeaux (3-1).
Behind the leading trio, most of the podium candidates did not stumble. With a double of his rookie Osimhen, Lille took the three points against Nantes (2-1), just like Saint-Etienne on the lawn of Dijon (1-2). Only snag of this first day, the ominous performance of OM, beaten at home in all logic by Reims, without ever or almost have been able to endanger the rear-guard champenoise (2-0). Sufficient so that, already, the first calls to the resignation of the management descend from the bays of Velodrome.
