De Bruyne turns his back on a hoofed clearance and the ball hits him just as it's about to go out of play, giving Southampton the throw-in. It's not been his day.

52'

  • 2nd Half
46' 

We're back underway, with neither side making any changes.

  • End of 1st Half
45' 

HT: Southampton 0-0 Manchester City. There's no added time to end the first half, one where Southampton have probably been the better team and came closest to scoring, when Hoedt hit the bar. City need to improve if they're to reach the 100-point mark.

43' 

Romeu tries his luck from range and his luck's not in as the ball flies wide.

42' 

Stoke are beating Swansea 2-1 - a former Southampton man with the goal in Crouch. Still no sign of a goal here.

39'

38' 

Stephens clears the ball out of the ground - fourth official Mike Dean is quick to find a replacement.

37' 
36' 

"The Saints are staying up" currently ringing around St. Mary's, and you can start to tell both on and off the pitch that it's the end of the season.

33' 

Stoke have equalised at Swansea, in case anyone thought the 10-goal swing might be on. It very much isn't right now.

31' 
31' 

Good defending from Laporte to prevent Austin making any meaningful contact with a cross from the left.

30' 

Sane's cross isn't dealt with well by Yoshida and there's panic in the Southampton box with McCarthy out of position and Silva lurking but the hosts manage to clear just in time.

29' 

City win a free-kick 25 yards out, just right of centre, which Sane takes but can't get past the wall.

25' 

A Southampton free-kick runs to Hoedt, who had peeled off from the main group of players in the box, and he scuffs a shot wide.

21' 

After Austin puts the first corner behind for another the second is cleared to Danilo, who drags a shot wide from range.

21' 

Sane tees up De Bruyne 20 yards from goal but his first touch is slightly loose, meaning his subsequent shot is deflected behind.

18' 

The news from Wales is that Swansea are 1-0 up.

16' 

Man City are dominating possession, as you'd expect, but without much joy. Yet.

12' 

Sterling is unable to get on the end of De Bruyne's cross, which ends up in the arms of McCarthy.

11' 

Redmond picks De Bruyne's pocket - after what had initially been good defensive work from the Belgian - to set up Austin, who shoots over.

10' 

City work a short corner to De Bruyne, whose cross evades everyone.

8' 

Southampton are inches away from taking the lead as Hoedt meets a corner at the near post and sees his header come back off the bar! This is an impressive start from the hosts.

7' 

Stephens, of all people, finds himself carrying the ball forward and ends up having a shot from just inside the City penalty box, which is deflected and then saved by Bravo.

5' 

This time it's Austin who is beaten to a through ball by the opposition goalkeeper.

4' 

Sterling and Gundogan almost connect with a one-two, but the former's return pass is slightly overhit and McCarthy comes off his line to collect.

3' 

Southampton look to spring a counter-attack down the right but Delph gets to a through ball just before Cedric.

  • 1st Half
1' 

The visitors get us underway.

14:58 

The Citizens are all in black, with Southampton in their usual red and white stripes.

14:55 

The player are making their way out onto the pitch, with kick-off just five minutes away. Andre Marriner is our referee.

14:50 

City won the earlier meeting of the teams this season 2-1. It was by no means a routine victory for the Manchester team, with the game perhaps best remembered for Guardiola's bizarre interaction with Nathan Redmond just after the final whistle, despite the fine winning goal.

14:45 
14:42

Southampton have eight points from their last four games - the same number of points they picked up from the 12 matches preceding this four-game run.

14:33 

Manchester City are familiar with the man in the Southampton dugout, of course, as Mark Hughes was their manager once upon a time. Hughes' contract at Southampton is up at the end of this but, with the Saints seemingly safe, he may well be in line to have that extended.

14:23 

Today is all about records for Man City. They already have the most points, goals and wins the Premier League has ever seen in a single season, and as well as bettering those marks they could also set new records for goal difference, away wins and away points should they leave St. Mary's victorious.

14:18 

Here is that lone victory, featuring a Sadio Mane hat-trick.

14:15

Manchester City have won six of the last nine meetings between the two clubs, with Southampton claiming just one victory in that time.

14:10 

Meanwhile Pep Guardiola makes four changes and resists the temptation to give some youngsters a run. Fabian Delph, John Stones, Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are the men who didn't start in midweek.

14:05 

First the hosts, who make one change to the team that picked up that crucial win at Swansea on Tuesday as the injured Jan Bednarek is replaced by Jack Stephens. Manolo Gabbiadini has to make do with a place on the bench again.

14:00 

Welcome along to Eurosport’s live coverage of the Manchester City’s trip to Southampton on the final day of the Premier League season. City are aiming to become the first Premier League team to reach 100 points and can break a host of other records today too, while Southampton aren't quite mathematically safe. It needs them to lose, Swansea to beat Stoke City and there to be a 10-goal swing if they are to go down though, so barring a truly remarkable set of results this will be a top-flight fixture again next season. Team news is up next.
