Fraizer Campbell scored two late goals as Cardiff marked their first Premier League home game with a famous 3-2 victory over Manchester City. Edin Dzeko appeared to have put Manuel PellegriniÂ’s side on course for the three points when his superb strike gave City the lead early in the second half. But Cardiff hit back when Aron Gunnarsson tucked home from close range just before the hour, before Campbell twice headed home from corners to spark scenes of delirium at Cardiff City Stadium. Alvaro Negredo got his first goal for City in stoppage time, but it was too little, too late. Few had given last seasonÂ’s Championship winners any hope of getting a result after City had opened their campaign so impressively against Newcastle. But Malky MackayÂ’s men worked tirelessly to deny their big-spending visitors the space to work their magic and they ended the game as deserving winners.
Roberto Soldado took his tally to four goals in three games as Tottenham maintained their 100 per cent record with a narrow victory over Swansea. The Â£26million record signing scored the winning goal from the penalty spot for the second week running. Tottenham dominated the game, but a killer instinct was lacking at times and Michel Vorm also pulled off a couple of top saves in the Swansea goal. Soldado took his spot-kick well while a pair of bruising performances from Etienne Capoue and Paulinho stifled SwanseaÂ’s creativity. Tottenham should have had the chance to bury the game in the first half but referee Neil Swarbrick failed to give what looked to be a clear penalty following a foul by Jonjo Shelvey on Andros Townsend.
