Southampton V Man. City - As it happened.

Join us for live updates from St. Mary's as Southampton welcome this season's Premier League champions, Manchester City.

It's all over at St. Mary's! Southampton are beaten at the death but a Gabriel Jesus lob that gives City a historic 100 point tally.
GOAL! CITY REACH 100! The ball is lumped forward to Jesus who controls the ball masterfully and side-foots it over the oncoming McCarthy. City have their century!
Cedric and Hojbjerg pick up a card each for giving the linesman a scolding.
There will be three minutes of added time.
The ball ends up in Bravo's hands.
Southampton might get a final chance here. Ward-Prowse is stood over a deep free-kick.
Hoedt turns the ball away for a corner. City have just five minutes to find a way through and reach 100 Premier League points!
Bertrand makes way for McQueen for the hosts. Foden comes on for Gundogan and becomes the youngest ever Premier League winner. Brahim also comes on Silva.
OFF THE LINE! Tadic rounds Bravo, cuts back to skin him again and then sends the ball goalwards. Fernandinho is on hand to hack the ball clear.
City appeal for a penalty after Jesus lifts the ball onto Hoedt's arm. The referee shakes his head.
Ward-Prowse gives Sterling a kick and sees his name go into the book.
Ward-Prowse beats Laporte in the air but fails to trouble Bravo with his header.
Both teams really going at each other here. This is going to be a thrilling ending!
Ward-Prowse and Long come on for Redmond and Austin.
POST! Sterling skips past his marker and lashes the ball at the goal but a last-ditch Austin dive deflects the ball onto the woodwork.
Gabriel Jesus replaces Delph. Pep's going for it!
Gundogan charges at the Saints defence and puts Sane in down the left who rifles a cross across the box and out for a throw-in.
Bernardo Silva dinks the ball back to Fernandinho who shanks his volley into the stands. Let off for the home side.
City are enjoying a good spell. Saints are keeping it tight at the back and refusing to let Pep's midfielders thread passes through.
The Belgian whips a dipping cross to the back post but it's too deep for the lunging Stones.
Sane is tugged to the deck on the edge of the box and City have a free-kick. De Bruyne is poised to deliver the ball.
Redmond gets us back underway!
No added time at St. Mary's, the referee blows his whistle for the end of the half. A strong first 45 minutes for the home side has kept City at bay. You can't help but think Guardiola's going to give his boys a stern talking to in the dressing room to try and spark some fight.
Good news for Saints fans - Stoke have flipped the score on it's head against Swansea and are now leading 2-1. Swansea now need an even bigger miracle to pip Saints to survival.
Southampton pile on the pressure before the break. Romeu unleashes a venemous strike but it drifts just wide of the top corner. What a goal that would've been!
Sterling wriggles away from Yoshida and thumps a shot over the crossbar. Always rising.
Hoedt whips a delightful ball into Austin but Laporte throws himself in the mix and does enough to put the Saints striker off.
Sane brands the wall with a poor free-kick. The danger is averted for the home side.
The ball falls to Hoedt at the back post who stings a half-volley into the side netting. Saints need to capitalise on this period of dominance.
Stones gives Austin a shove and Saints have a dangerous free kick out on the left.
De Bruyne, who's looking crafty as always, tries his luck from the dee but sees his effort deflected behind. Austin hacks clear the resulting corner.
News just in of a goal at the Liberty - that means that there's now 'just' an eight goal difference between Saints and Swansea at the bottom...
Redmond pickpockets De Bruyne on the edge of the City box and lays the ball off to Austin who blasts his strike into row Z.
SO CLOSE! Hoedt rises to meet a corner and sees his header come crashing off the bar!
Jack Stephens of all people finds himself with a shooting opportunity on the edge of the City box. He stabs his effort straight at Bravo.
Sterling makes a run in behind but Gundogan's dinked pass is too strong and trickles away from the Englishman.
Nothing to write home about in the opening minutes down on the South Coast.
We're underway!
A real treat for fans down on the South Coast. Can Southampton get sweet revenge on the side that beat them in the dying seconds at the Etihad earlier this season?
Man City XI: Bravo, Danilo, Stones, Laporte, Delph, Fernandinho, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Bernardo, Sane, Sterling.
Southampton XI: McCarthy, Cedric, Hoedt, Yoshida, Stephens, Bertrand, Romeu, Hojbjerg, Tadic, Redmond, Austin.
Hello and welcome to our live feed of Southampton v Manchester City! A win today for the visitors will make them the first team in Premier League history to reach 100 points in a single campaign. Saints need to avoid a drumming in order to mathematically secure their safety in England's top flight.
