City go to Top of the Table

premier league liveManchester City kept up their 100% record in the Premier League to go top of the table having reached the 3-2 away to Bolton.

The hosts had begun brightly but City gradually took control and in the 26th minute they took the lead when David Silva's dipping shot somehow found a way past Jussi Jaaskelainen.

The Finn could do nothing about the visitors' second eight minutes before the break as Gareth Barry let fly from 25 yards, but Wanderers responded almost immediately, Ivan Klasnic turning in a cross from Martin Petrov brilliantly six minutes before half-time.

What Bolton needed was a good start to the second half but they got exactly the opposite as Edin Dzeko seized on a flick from James Milner before holding off Zat Knight and drilling a shot past Jaaskelainen less than two minutes after the break.

However, just when it was beginning to look like a case of how many City would score, Bolton found the net again courtesy of a trademark Kevin Davies header from Martin Petrov's free-kick in the 62nd minute.

Bolton continued to push for an equaliser, but the introduction of Carlos Tevez for Sergio Aguero kept them busy at the back and Roberto Mancini's men held on for the win.

 

 

Wolves' impressive start to the season continued as goals from Kevin Doyle and Matt Jarvis earned them a 2-0 victory over Fulham at Molineux.

Doyle, who had already missed a good opportunity, opened the scoring in the 42nd minute when he collected Jarvis' pass and smashed a shot past Mark Schwarzer.

Jarvis doubled the hosts' advantage moments later, pouncing after Roger Johnson's header had come back off the woodwork.

The result means Wolves, who triumphed 2-1 at Blackburn last weekend, have recorded back-to-back league wins at the start of a campaign for the first time since the 1998-99 season.

Ten-man Norwich were denied a first Premier League win when Kenwyne Jones headed in a stoppage-time equaliser for Stoke to make it 1-1 at Carrow Road.

Ritchie de Laet had scored against his old club to put the Canaries in front at the break.

After Jon Walters saw his penalty saved following Leon Barnett's red card on the hour, it looked as if Norwich would hold on - only for Stoke's pressure eventually to tell with Jones nodding in from close range.
