FULL-TIME

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

And that is it. All over. A great point for the visitors. Southampton will feel like it is two points dropped.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

It looked like Tadic wanted it, but Maya Yoshida takes the free-kick instead, it just goes wide. Just after Charlie Austin hits the side netting and that could be it.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Free kick for Southampton on the edge of the box. Dusan Tadic to take it.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Time is running out for the hosts. This would be a great point for Swansea.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

A penalty shout for Southampton as the ball hits Kyle Bartley's arms. The defender has his arms raised but the shot was at close-range to him.

'It is just not happening for him today'

Dusan Tadic should do better. He has got a great left foot, but it just is not happening for him today.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Another chance for Dusan Tadic. How are Southampton not winning this one? This time Tadic narrowly curls a shot over the top from the edge of the penalty area.

SUBSTITUTION

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Swansea look to be happy with a point as striker Tammy Abraham goes off, to be replaced by defender Kyle Bartley.

GREAT SAVE!

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Dusan Tadic should have scored earlier on and has just forced an excellent save from Lukasz Fabianski, who pushed over Tadic's 25-yard piledriver.

Moments later Maya Yoshida, unmarked at the back post, heads over the top from close range when he should have done better.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

And now another corner, Southampton's 12th, and again it doesn't beat the first man at the near post. Mauricio Pellegrino's evident frustration is matched by most of the crowd.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Nope. Another corner wasted from Southampton. Swansea to steal a win against all odds? We've seen it happen before when a home team has all the ball, all the chances, all the corners and lose.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

A panicky header from Kyle Naughton, who heads behind for a corner under no pressure. Is this Southampton's time?

SUBSTITUTION

Sofiane Boufal's first involvement is to swing in a free-kick, but Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is off his line impressively to gather the ball.

Now it is Paul Clement's turn to look to the bench as Jay Fulton replaces captain Leon Britton for the visitors, with Wayne Routledge taking the armband.

SUBSTITUTION

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

They opt for a short corner, but Swansea, as they have been all day, are organised enough to see off the danger. Another change for the hosts as James Ward-Prowse comes off with Sofiane Boufal the second Southampton substitution.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Two corners prove unsuccessful for the Saints, but now they have a third.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Manolo Gabbiadini, on the edge of the penalty area, spins to create some space, but drags a pass / shot across the face of goal and the chance evaporates. Maybe they will have more luck with the set-piece. And just before a corner can be taken, that is the end for Gabbiadini as he jogs off with Charlie Austin sent on to make an impact.

While there can be little doubt Southampton have created the most chances, Swansea optimism about leaving Hampshire with a valuable point must be increasing.

They are well in this game now and with Leroy Fer's shot just wide, have created the best chance in the second half.

This might be a good time to mention that the Saints have not won at home on the opening day of the season since 1988!

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

If Southampton do sell Virgil van Dijk they may put some of that money towards a new centre-forward. They have looked solid at the back, and the build-up has been promising, but they are failing to breach a well-organised Swansea defence at the moment.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

The second half has not been as lively as the first. Southampton have had 16 attempts at goal in the match, but only one on target. Swansea still to test Fraser Forster. Some shooting practice needed for both sides.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Another waste for Southampton. Dusan Tadic leads a charge and tries to find Manolo Gabbiadini in the middle but the cross is poor and Swansea easily clear their lines.

Graham Green: New season, same old story. Poor finishing by Southampton and only PL game so far without a goal.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Still the chances come for the hosts. A reverse pass from Dusan Tadic gives Manolo Gabbiadini a chance. But the striker, in his ninth club game without a goal, curls the ball wide.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Swansea offered little as an attacking threat in the first half, but instantly look brighter at the start of the second.

Tammy Abraham produces a lovely swivel turn to deceive Maya Yoshida before shooting at goal, but the effort is blocked by Cedric Soares with the rebound falling to Leroy Fer, who fires wide.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

And we're back.

HALF-TIME

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Southampton have had so many chances, but they have not been able to make any of their opportunities count.

Swansea will be relieved to get in to the break level, but Paul Clement will be wanting more from his side as they have not tested Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster at all. Entertaining, but goalless at half-time.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

It looks a painful one for Swansea defender Martin Olsson. He is trying to shepherd the ball out of play under pressure from James Ward-Prowse and the defender cannot stop himself in time as he crashes over the advertising board.

After a bit of time, he re-emerges looking a bit shocked, but is able to carry on.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

The corner comes to nothing, but Southampton keep the ball alive and it falls to Maya Yoshida 10 yards out after a knockdown from Jack Stephens. Yoshida goes for the spectacular, acrobatic volley but can only shoot it just past the post. Swansea survive again.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Another corner for Southampton. Can they get a goal their pressure deserves?

YELLOW CARD

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Oriol Romeu becomes the second Saint to be a sinner. He joins Nathan Redmond in the book for a no-nonsense challenge on Swansea's Tom Carroll as the pair challenged for a bouncing ball.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

A bright opening half hour to the season from Southampton, but they have not been able to make any of their nine attempts count. Swansea yet to test Fraser Forster in the home goal.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Dusan Tadic goes down on the edge of the area under a clumsy-looking challenge from Federico Fernandez.

The home players and supporters want a penalty, referee Mike Jones has a long think about it, but then says no. The hosts are not happy.

Refreshed Redmond

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Southampton's Nathan Redmond, a harsh yellow card aside, has started the season in fine form for the Saints.

Redmond and left back Ryan Bertrand are combining beautifully and Kyle Naughton is struggling to contain them. A fine cross from Redmond caused all sorts of problems and Swansea were relieved to see James Ward Prowse's shot deflect over off Alfie Mawson.

The Swans are grateful to still be on level terms.

GOOD SAVE!

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Another chance comes for Southampton and another chance goes for Southampton. Nathan Redmond 20 yards out fires over the top. Moments later Swansea try to play themselves out of trouble but gift it to the hosts.

It eventually falls to James Ward-Prowse, who curls one looking to beat Lukasz Fabianski from 25 yards out.

But the keeper is well placed to dive to his left and hold on to the shot.

CLOSE!

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

More pressure from the hosts. This time Nathan Redmond's powerful cross from the left is just too high for the advancing James Ward-Prowse.

The ball is recycled into the box and eventually falls to Redmond, but he gets his shot from 10 yards wrong as he drags his effort well wide.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea

Ryan Bertrand

A half-chance for Southampton. It again comes after good work by the lively Ryan Bertrand. He gets to the byeline and fizzes in a cross. Manolo Gabbiadini darts to the near post and gets there first, but, under pressure from Swans centre-half Alfie Mawson, the Italian can only steer the ball over the top.
