  1. Post update

    Man City 2-1 Southampton

    There was late drama elsewhere in the Premier League, too, as Liverpool clinched a late winner of their own.

    Follow reaction to all of today's Premier League action here.

  2. FULL-TIME - Man City 2-1 Southampton

    It's not to be for Southampton.

    But you can't say City didn't deserve to take all three points here - they dominated pretty much from start to finish.


    Huge save from Alex McCarthy to keep out Gabriel Jesus as City look for a third.

  4. Post update

    Man City 2-1 Southampton

    That is heartbreaking for Southampton.

    Have they got anything left?

  5. GOAL - Man City 2-1 Southampton

    Kyle Walker

    You can't say it hasn't been coming.

    Angelino's cross eludes Alex McCarthy and Kyle Walker is there to slide it home.

    BIG goal for City.

  6. CLOSE!

    Man City 1-1 Southampton

    City keep on coming.

    Jack Stephens somehow blocks a Sergio Aguero effort.

    Then the Saints defenders combine to scramble away the next attack.

  7. Post update

    Man City 1-1 Southampton

    Phil Foden is on for City.

    Can he find them a winner?

  8. CLOSE!

    Man City 1-1 Southampton

    So very nearly.

    Kevin De Bruyne wraps his foot around the free-kick but his effort goes the wrong side of the post for City.

  9. Post update

    Man City 1-1 Southampton

    Ooh here we go.

    There's a momentary lapse of concentration from Alex McCarthy as he picks up Jannik Vestergaard's back pass.

    City have an indirect free-kick in the Saints penalty area...


    Man City 1-1 Southampton

    Raheem Sterling tip-toes his way around the Saints box and eventually lays one off for Bernardo Silva, but the Portuguese' powerful shot is saved by Alex McCarthy.

    That's the first save he's made of note.

  11. Time for a winner

    Man City 1-1 Southampton

    Chris Bevan

    BBC Sport at Etihad Stadium

    That City goal came from their 46th cross from open play, and their first shot on target.

    Now the home fans are on their feet and roaring them on for more - the noise at the Etihad is deafening.


    Man City 1-1 Southampton

    Yan Valery is replaced by Kevin Danso.

  13. Post update

    Man City 1-1 Southampton

    Both players take a little drinks break as Pep Guardiola passes on some instructions to Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero.

  14. Post update

    Man City 1-1 Southampton

    That was City's 19th shot but only their first on target.

    The home crowd have well and truly woken up now.

  15. GOAL - Man City 1-1 Southampton

    Sergio Aguero

    City have their breakthrough!

    Kevin De Bruyne plays in Kyle Walker, who drills in a cross from the byline and Sergio Aguero is there to instinctively turn it home.

    Not much Alex McCarthy could do about that one.

  16. Post update

    Man City 0-1 Southampton

    Surely Pep has got to change something soon?

    20 minutes for City to find a goal.

    Graham Green: Still plenty of time for this to go pear-shaped, but Southampton players showing they are much better than an 0-9 team languishing in the relegation zone. If only they could play to their potential every week. That’s not too much to ask, is it?

  18. CLOSE!

    Man City 0-1 Southampton

    Is it one of *those* days for City?

    Sergio Aguero does well to get in-between the Saints centre-backs but he can only head Bernardo Silva's peach of a cross over the bar.

  19. Post update

    Man City 0-1 Southampton

    James Ward-Prowse flings himself at Ilkay Gundogan's shot.

    The Saints are putting everything on the line today.

  20. Post update

    Man City 0-1 Southampton

    City are lacking inspiration going forward which is something you rarely see.

    Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden are on the bench. Are either of them the answer?
