in football you can't really dream of more or expect more. then again, we're just working on of more or expect more. then again, we'rejust working on improving as of more or expect more. then again, we're just working on improving as a team, finding a style that suits us with the players we have and i think today we showed that we still need a bit of time. but that — it's coming. we are improving. we had our chances, but the 60 minutes we were playing well. quite well. then in the final view we did deposed, we hit the bar and our final decisions were slightly. 2—3 sucker punch in the game changes completely. that is the story of the game, there were lessons, mistakes and you lose games. elsewhere, arsenal made a winning start to the new season. pierre—emerick aubameyang, who was the league's joint—top scorer last season — scored the only goal of the game as the gunners won at newcastle.
i think with that victory, because we tried to be offensive and defensive also. we controlled position and attacked in the space ina good position and attacked in the space in a good moment and were efficient when we need. i think today we worked the ball very well. there was one other game played on sunday. leicester city and wolverhampton wanderers shared a goalless draw at the king power stadium. in france, it's business as usual for paris saint—germain, looking to win the ligue i title for the third season in a row — and seventh time in eight years. they kicked off their campaign with a comfortable 3—0 victory over nimes at the parc des princes. while wantaway striker neymar was left out of the squad, psg certainly didn't miss him. edinson cavani opening the scoring from the penalty spot.
they added two more in the second—half, with kylian mbappe making it 2—0 on 56 minutes. angel di maria came off the subs bench to score the third in the 69th minute. in the day's other games, summer signing victor osimhen had a dream debut scoring both goals for lille in a 2—1 win against nantes, while strasbourg and metz drew i—all. in the netherlands, psv eindhoven have their first league win of the season, after coming from behind to beat den haag. 20—year—old cody gakpo completed the scoring in a 3—1 victory for psv. it was only his second goalfor the club. well also in the eredivise on sunday, take a look at this worldy from hereveen centre back ibrahim dresevic. the 22—year—old swede striding forward before nailing a spectacular strike from miles away! that goal in the 80th minute giving his side a 1—1 draw with feyenoord. teenager bianca andreescu has taken the rogers cup title in toronto. but it's certainly not the way she would have wanted to win. her opponent serena williams retiring with a back injury which brought her to tears.
and could also scupper her participation in the us open which starts in a fortnight. colm harrison has more. serena williams‘ bed for a fourth canadian title wasn‘t supposed to end like this. in tears, after being forced to retire their injury and with a sympathetic hide from her opponent. williams had taken to the courtaiming to opponent. williams had taken to the court aiming to take herfirst opponent. williams had taken to the court aiming to take her first title in 2.5 years. many might have expected a routine victory when she came from breakpoint down to win her opening service game. but bianca andreescu is one of the most improved players on tour. from 215 in the rankings last year in october, the teenager from toronto is now on the verge of breaking into the work was backed up 20. a winner at indian wells earlier in the year, she was having herfirst at indian wells earlier in the year, she was having her first meetings with williams. the american was able
to give her opponent the runaround from time to time but it was clear williams was playing within herself. and after the canadian opened a 3—1 lead, the farmer world number one decided she could no longer continue —— former, back spasms forcing a premature end of the match. worryingly, there are just two weeks to the start of the us open. it is under way either of them wanted this match two and, if canada has its first winner since 1969 bianca andreescu has her second tier one title of 2019. column harrison, bbc news. —— com harrison. i feel like a ifeel like a million bucks, no pun intended. but no, seriously, it‘s not the way i wanted to win. it‘s not the way i wanted to win. it‘s not easy for a napoli to pull out, especially in a final round —— an athlete. but i know she is going to bounce back real quick. she is an incredible athlete and i wish her the fastest recovery.
meanwhile, rafael madal won the men‘s final in montreal by thrashing russia‘s daniil medvedev in straight sets. the top seed and world number two needed just just 70 minutes to complete a 6—3, 6—0 victory and claim a record—extending 35th masters series title, and his fifth in canada. i play out a grand final, during the week of course there have been up—and—down. as is normalfrom coming from holidays. but i was able to find a way and today i played my best match so far. though very happy about my level today. thus confidence and just happy about winning the title here again in montreal means a lot to me. on to golf, and patrick reed of the usa has won the northern trust open in newjersey, which was the first event of three which make up the end—of—season fedex cup play—offs. reed shot a 2—under—par round of 69 to finish on 16—under for the tournament,
one shot ahead of mexico‘s abraham ancer. rory mcilroy also went round in 69 to finish in a tie for sixth on 12—under—par — and that means he drops to 3rd in the overall fedex cup standings, behind reed. the american is now up to second, after starting the week in 50th place. to come out and get the w this weekend to climb really quickly and get up to second, nowjust going out and resting tomorrow. you know, i‘ll start playing aggressive again and try and get up there is has a can. —— as high as i can. on to rugby union, and wales missed the chance to move to the top of the world rankings when they lost to england on sunday. a win for the welsh would have taken them ahead of new zealand in the rankings — but they were beaten 33—19 in the first of four world cup warm—up matches for each team. from twickenham, patrick gearey reports. they called this a warm—up, but england against wales is always piping hot. all the wells needed to do was win
01’ all the wells needed to do was win or draw all the wells needed to do was win ordrawa all the wells needed to do was win or draw a heretic and they would gone above new zealand to the number one ranking spot. but getting results of the home of english rugby is never easy. england named an experimental side but bombed quickly. bulldozing their way through the worst offence. wales scrum—half gareth davies then started his way through england cosmic defence to get wells back into this, but it was a rusty wells performance epitomise by england cosmic third try. a ball straight to the opposite number, luke cowin and it was 21—7 two england at half time. in the second half george north came forward and it seemed to set upa north came forward and it seemed to set up a big comeback. the earlier penalties and drop goal meant that they came through this world but eddiejones has some thinking to do. he names his squad for the rugby world cup on monday. i'll i‘ll worry about that tomorrow. today i think ijust enjoy the effo rts today i think ijust enjoy the efforts of the players. i think they
worked really hard, put on a good display rugby and i think if you are in that 80,000 people there, you would want to come back to twig and to see them play again, that‘s only a good thing. it sounded like a one—day cricket crowd at one stage. it is disappointing about the result but it isn't something we would dwell on too much. we have things to work on that we need to address an... we will see the positives today from as well as an making sure their performances are in a movement from today. — — their performances are in a movement from today. —— an improvement. whoever wins the world cup injapan is the number one team in the world. you can get all the latest sports news at our website — that‘s bbc.com/sport. but from me ben mundy and the rest
of the sport today team, goodbye. hello. it‘s been a weekend of wild weather. we‘ve had heavy rain that‘s caused some flooding, thunderstorms and strong winds, too. the week ahead looks a little bit quieter, but still an unsettled theme. there‘s further rain at times, particularly on wednesday. and things are feeling rather cool and breezy, too. now the low pressure that brought us the weekend‘s wet and windy weather is now pushing off towards the north—east, but we‘ve still got a few weather fronts draped across the country during monday morning. so, some heavy showers, particularly in the south. some thunderstorms possible too anywhere from the channel isles up toward sussex and kent as well. to the north of that, a little bit drier. so some sunshine norfolk, through the midlands towards wales and the north—west of england. a little bit of light, drizzly rain still lingering for north—east england through monday morning. and since showers packing into parts of northern ireland and the west
of scotland, but for the bulk of scotland, a much improved day after the heavy rain and flooding we‘ve had recently. much drier weather for scotland. a few showers towards the north and the west. some showers, too, for northern ireland but through the south of england we also going to see a few heavy showers today. but, some sunshine and it is generally a drier day than we‘ve seen recently. only 16—19 degrees to the north—westerly breeze, so things are feeling quite a bit cooler than they have done. showers will continue to monday night to tuesday but they‘ll slowly ease away towards the east through into the early hours and quite widely in the countryside down into single figures. so quite a cold, fresh start for tuesday for tuesday for many of us. some misty patches should clear a pretty quickly. through the day on tuesday, one or two showers still but they‘ll be much fewer and further between then we have seen recently and the winds will be much lighter, too. so actually in sunshine tuesday, one of the best days this week. 16—21 degrees or so. later in the day it‘ll cloud over
from the south—west with the arrival of some more rain overnight. all down to this area of low pressure during wednesday, that brings us a very unsettled story, especially across england and wales. that‘s where we see the bulk of the rain on wednesday. the winds also strengthening, particularly strong and gusty along the south coast of england. also, some heavy showers likely across parts of scotland once again through the day on wednesday but i think a drier slot for southern scotland, northern england and northern ireland. but it will feel pretty cool, particularly where you‘ve got the showery rain. by the time we get to thursday, again, most the showers will have eased away. so a slightly drier window in the weather on thursday, some sunny spells, a few showers moving in from the north—west but many of us will avoid them. temperatures about 15—21 degrees on thursday but then things turn more unsettled as we look towards the end of the week. down to another area of low pressure moving in — that brings us some strong winds and some heavy rain by saturday. bye— bye.
