That's all for tonight over here, folks.

You can follow the dramatic Championship play-off semi-final penalty shoot out here.

There's more Premier League action on Thursday when Leicester face Tottenham.

Going into the final game...

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

A draw means nothing to the Premier League standings.

Manchester United will finish the season in sixth, no matter what happens in their final game against Crystal Palace. And even if they win that one, it will be their lowest ever total of wins in a single Premier League season (17).

Southampton remain in eighth - which is the highest position they can finish in - but West Brom, Bournemouth and Leicester City can snatch it off them on the final day.

The Saints finish the season against Stoke.

Manchester United

Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero speaking to Sky Sports: "For us, the result is important. When we take a clean sheet it is good for me, and defenders, and for the team. It gives us more confidence for the final.

"For us it's the important game of the year. We need the trophy for the club."

'We needed to be clinical'

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Southampton

Southampton manager Claude Puel speaking to Sky Sports: "It's a shame our performance was not enough in the first half. But in the second half in terms of opportunities, we deserved to score and had seven or eight shots on target. We needed to be clinical perhaps, but we played good football and had chances to win the game.

"It's a third penalty miss in so many games. It's very important as it can give confidence and we needed confidence at the beginning of the game. It's a problem perhaps for us but in the second half I'm happy with our comeback."

De Gea's future discussed

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Jose Mourinho is asked when fans can expect to see David de Gea again. The United keeper has been linked with a move this summer.

"David? I think the first match against LA Galaxy in pre-season," said Mourinho. "I hope to play Joel Pereira against Palace and Sergio in the Europa final.

"David is top of the world and obviously we want to keep him."

'They gave me positive feelings'

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Manchester United

Jose Mourinho is asked if his players came away unscathed tonight: I don't know. Fellani hasn't got a tear but he's experienced enough to know he had a feeling. Apart from that nothing. It's all good.

"We played a good team, a team who tried to win and tried to finish well. I think we did more than ok.

"I think all of them gave me positive feelings. Sergio had a very good performance, more than very good. The team wasn't perfect but individually they gave me good things. They showed me they want to be an option for the final."

'It won't be straightforward'

Manchester United will travel to Stockholm next Wednesday to take on Ajax in the Europa League final.

Former United coach Rene Meulensteen was speaking to the Monday Night Club on BBC Radio 5 live this week.

"If they don’t win the Europa league then it’s a disappointing season, simple as that," he said.

"They were clear in setting out their season to get back in Champions League and more than anything compete for the title.

"It’s a great advert, Ajax v United, but it wont be a straightforward conclusion I don’t think."

FT: Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Manchester United

Manchester United defender Phil Jones speaking to Sky Sports: "We've got the final coming up so that's in the back of our minds. Coming off the back of two defeats it's a good result and we kept a clean sheet."

"Whoever plays in the final is good enough to go out there and win the game. All we can do as indidivuals is play well."

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

That's 15 draws for Man United this season and 10 for Southampton.

We should have guessed the outcome, really.

FULL-TIME

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

My £3.62 is safe!

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Man United have a free-kick, just inside the Southampton half.

It's swept in by Wayne Rooney but it's nowhere near causing any danger. Saints clear.

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Jose Mourinho is livid. He's out of the technical area to dispute an offside call against Marcus Rashford, who was sprinting on to a long ball.

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Four minutes of added time.

I'd put my life savings (£3.62) on no-one scoring in that time.

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Matt Targett sends Sergio Romero into action again, this time with a low drive from the left.

If the rumours are true and David de Gea is leaving this summer, then surely United fans would be happy with Romero taking the number one shirt?

Neil Leverett: Romero's positioning has been superb tonight.

Paul Gibbons: Surely you'd want your team brimming with confidence going into a final? Seriously don't understand Mourinho.

Gareth Murray: As a pretty meaningless encounter, you would think Mourinho might have encouraged his team to entertain a little.

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

'Attack, attack, attack, attack, attack'.

It sounds like that chant is coming from the visiting fans...

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Southampton go all tiki-taka, and play it out beautifully from the back.

Dusan Tadic pulls back to Sofiane Boufal, who takes his time to switch to his left foot, but he can't keep his effort down.

CLOSE!

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Jay Rodridguez turns and flashes a brilliant strike past Sergio Romero's far post.

Was the Saints sub offside? Perhaps.

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

It's all gets a bit messy in the midfield. Both teams gifting possession to one another.

Sofiant Boufal runs at Phil Jones, wrong-foots Michael Carrick and suddenly Southampton are in loads of space.

Jeremy Pied has it out on the right, sends it in but it's soon cleared.

SUBSTITUTION

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

And the final change now. James Ward-Prowse comes off and Sofiane Boufal comes on.

Ward-Prowse has been very impressive tonight.

SUBSTITUTION

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Marouane Fellani is taken off, perhaps with a bit of a knock. He's having a word with Man United boss Jose Mourinho before heading down to the treatment room.

Ander Herrera is on in his place.

'Martial really unlucky'

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Steve Claridge

Ex-Leicester striker on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

That's what Manchester United have been looking for all night.

Really, really unlucky. He's got a lot of people to whip the ball round and he hasn't got the angle, but it's a wonderful try.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Matteo Darmian makes a great block to deny James Ward-Prowse.

And suddenly United attack and Anthony Martial's strike, from just outside the area, hits the inside of the post and bounces out again.

The visitors' best chance of the game, without doubt.

'Interesting substitution'

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Steve Claridge

Ex-Leicester striker on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

I'm wondering why Charlie Austin didn't come on in place of Jay Rodriguez.

I would have thought this would have been a perfect re-introduction.

Austin really is a great player.

SUBSTITUTION

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Marcus Rashford is on for Juan Mata. The Spaniard goes straight down the tunnel.

Meanwhile, Southampton bring off a limping Cedric and replace him with Jeremy Pied.

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Wayne Rooney unselfishly lays a cute ball off to Juan Mata who puts his first-time shot over the bar.

You can see what they were trying to do, but it could have been executed better.

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

The Eric Bailly show is still in session!

This time, the Man United defender clears the ball out of play and it smacks on to the cheek of Southampton manager Claude Puel!

We think he found the funny side of that...

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Wayne Rooney snatches possession on the half-way line and links up well with Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but Rooney's final pass across the box doesn't quite make it to his team-mate's feet.

'Southampton miss Austin'

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Steve Claridge

Ex-Leicester striker on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Southampton have definitely missed Charlie Austin.

At home there's no doubt that his absence has contributed to a lack of goals and a lack of wins.

Gabbiadini started brightly but he has definitely tailed off.

SUBSTITUTION

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Saints move first with the subs. Manolo Gabbiadini makes way for Jay Rodriguez.

It looks like there's some movement on the visitors' bench too...

Yep. Michael Carrick is coming on for Axel Tuanzebe.

Nuren: Romero has been outstanding tonight.

Hasn't he just? Man of the match for the visitors.

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

A Southampton corner falls to Jack Stephens. The Saints defender miscues his shot from close range and the ball bounces about like a pinball before being cleared.

The hosts build up again and James Ward-Prowse strikes from distance with so much force and top spin. Sergio Romero saves the day again!

It's all Southampton at the moment.

GREAT SAVE!

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Oriol Romeu's rasping effort is palmed away by Sergio Romero again.

David de Gea who?

GREAT SAVE!

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

James Ward-Prowse rolls the ball to Dusan Tadic and the Southampton number 11 sends his forceful strike into the path of Sergio Romero, who claws away the danger.

YELLOW CARD

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

A silly challenge from Phil Jones, right on the cusp of the penalty area, on a leaping Cedric Soares.

Southampton get a free-kick in a dangerous position and United defender Jones is rightly booked.

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Eric Bailly loves a bit of drama at the start of a half.

Having given away a penalty after five minutes, the Man United defender clashes with Matt Targett on the edge of the area.

No free-kick given, though. It looks like Bailly won that battle.

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney combine, but as the Man United captain races into the box, he loses his footing and Southampton clear.
