LONDON (AP) — Arsenal stayed in first place in the Premier League after scoring two late goals in a 2-0 victory over Cardiff on Wednesday while other contenders also started the year with victories.

Nicklas Bendtner and Theo Walcott scored for Arsenal, which downed 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. Chelsea's 3-0 victory at Southampton in harsh weather ensured that 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.
