90’
There will be three minutes of added time to see if the deadlock can be broken.
90’
Sane thinks he is through on goal but the linesman's flag is up.
90’
GOAL, MAN CITY, JESUS! 0-1: Unbelievable. Jesus scores with what will surely bu the last kick of the game. The Brazilian lobs over McCarthy and proceeds to celebrate in the stands with his shirt off.
90’
Game over and with that late, late goal get to the 100 point mark. Saints will not be too unhappy though as they survive after Swansea lose to Stoke, which sees the Swans reegated.
90’
SOUTHAMPTON 0 - 1 MANCHESTER CITY
87’
City are pushing for that winner that would see them reach 100 points in the league.
84’
Stones almost ends the season with own goal but Bravo gets back before the ball crosses the line.
82’
Diaz and Foden come on for the fifth appearances of the season which means they will receive a Premier League winners medal. Silva and Gundogan go off.
80’
Bertrand's season is over as he is replaced by McQueen.
78’
OFF THE LINE! Tadic toys with Bravo before unleashing a shot which Fernandinho clears off the line.
74’
Handball shout by City is waved away. Would have been very harsh on Hoedt.
72’
The first card goes the way of Ward-Prowse who cynically fouls Sterling.
70’
Ward-Prowse uncharacteristically gets his head to a cross but his effort is well saved by Bravo.
67’
The Saints launch an attack but Stones is there to head clear. A quarter of the game left for one of these teams to find a goal.
64’
Long comes on to replace Austin who has not had much service today.
61’
WOODWORK! The ball falls for Sterling but his effort is deflected onto the frame of the goal.
59’
Attacking change for City as Delph goes off for Jesus.
56’
Fernandinho just about kicks the ball out of the stadium from 15 yards away from goal.
54’
Man City are well and truly dominating as backed up by the stats. They have had 90 percent possession in this second half.
51’
City are dealing in crosses at the moment. Fortunately for the Saints Sane fouls Cedric to allow them a chance to regroup.
49’
De Bruyne's free kick evades everyone and goes narrowly wide.
48’
Pep's words have sprung the champions into life. They have won a free kick 30 yards out.
46’
We are back underway at St Mary's with all hoping for a more enterprising half of football.
45’
Half time is signalled at St Mary's. Mark Hughes will be feeling relieved, his side are 45 minutes away from being safe. Only a diabolical half of football and a Swansea comeback would send them down.
45’
Southampton 0 - 0 Manchester City.
42’
Romeu's strike is inches from settling in the top corner but it sails just over.
40’
The Saints fan are in song. "We are staying up" they sing. Hopefully the positivity translates onto the pitch. It has not been the greatest half of football at St Mary's.
35’
Mark Hughes looks mightily content in the dugout and for good reason. Stoke have equalised against Swansea meaning the Saints are well and truly safe at this stage.
31’
Southampton escape after Yoshida's header falls toward David Silva but the Spaniard misses his kick.
29’
Sane's free kick from 25 yards is smashed straight into the wall.
25’
Tadic's ball is nodded toward Hoedt but the Dutchman's strike hits the side-netting.
22’
A corner is nodded away by the Saints, but it falls to Danilo 25 yards out. His strike scuttles wide though.
20’
Nothing to speak of in either goalmouth at the moment. Southampton will be more than happy to keep it goalless.
17’
Swansea have taken the lead at the Liberty, as things stand Southampton would be safe by one point.
13’
De Bruyne crosses for the diminutive Sterling, no surprise as the ball goes sailing over the wingers head.
11’
A short corner by City is blocked away for a corner. Saints will be happy with how the game has started.
9’
WOODWORK! Hoedt meets a corner and his header crashes off the crossbar.
7’
Positive burst forward from Stephens forces the first save from Bravo.
4’
The hosts are enjoying most of the early possession as was expected. But are yet to test McCarthy.
2’
It is six years ago since Aguero's late strike saw them clinch the title. A far more relaxed atmosphere today.
1’
The referee blows his whistle and the game is underway.
0’
Hello and welcome to St Mary's for the last chapter in the 2017/2018 Premier League season between Southampton and Manchester City.
0’
With City already crowned champions they will be looking to add one final win to cap off a magnificent season.
0’
Southampton need a point to guarantee their safety, however, avoiding a heavy defeat at the hands of the champions will, in all likelihood, see them remain a Premier League club for next season.
