LONDON (AP) - Arsenal stayed top of the Premier League after scoring two late goals in a 2-0 win against Cardiff while other title contenders also started the year with victories on Wednesday.

Nicklas Bendtner and Theo Walcott scored Arsenal's goals at the Emirates to down a resilient Cardiff team that played in front of expected new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Manchester City remained second, one point behind the Gunners, after a 3-2 win at Swansea, while Chelsea's 3-0 victory at Southampton in awful weather conditions ensured Jose Mourinho's team stayed in third place, two points behind the leaders.

Liverpool climbed back into the top four after Luis Suarez scored his 20th goal of the season in a 2-0 win over Hull.
