Fraizer Campbell celebrates scoring Cardiff's third goal of the game

Fraizer Campbell scored two late goals as Cardiff marked their first Premier League home game with a famous 3-2 victory over Manchester City on Sunday.

Edin Dzeko appeared to have put Manuel Pellegrini'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 season's Championship winners any hope of getting a result after City had opened their campaign so impressively against Newcastle.

But Malky Mackay'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 £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 Swansea'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.

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.

s for City, can't believe you omitted Sergio. He's both dreamy and lovable rolled into one humble genius. Kolarov, we've all played with a mad cap left back who simply loves two things, shooting and tackling. To leave out Martin Demichellis, shame on you.
