Soccer eam that's second in sporting venue by lake (7)
I believe the answer is:
'soccer eam' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this defines the answer.
'second in sporting venue by lake' is the wordplay.
'second' becomes 's' (common abbreviation).
'in' indicates putting letters inside.
'sporting venue' becomes 'arena' (sports arena).
'by' says to put letters next to each other.
'lake' becomes 'L' (geographical abbreviation).
's' going within 'arena' is 'arsena'.
'that's' acts as a link.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for arsenal that I've seen before include "Collection of weapons" , "array of weapons" , "6D 5A [TUBE STATION]" , "Gunners of North London" , "Armoury - London football club" .)
