  1. Thanks for tuning in this evening. Stay with Sky Sports for the full match report and all the reaction.

  2. 19.26

    That's it! Southampton beat Manchester City 3-1!

  3. 90+5

    Southampton are content to share passes in midfield as they see out the remaining minutes. It looks like this is all over for City...

  4. 90+4

    Superb defending from Hooiveld as he intervenes on a dangerous-looking break from Maicon down the right.

  5. 90+3

    Southampton win a free-kick inside their own end to ease their nerves in these dying minutes. Yoshida's long ball is nodded out for a Saints throw.

  6. 90+2

    Barry and Toure trade passes in the middle of the park, still hunting some kind of comeback as the minutes count down.

  7. 90+1

    Zabaleta wins a corner for City in these dying minutes, which Kolarov hurries to take on the right. Five minutes of stoppage time are added, much to the annoyance of the home faithful.

  8. 90

    We're into the final minute of regular time. Yaya Toure feeds Maicon in midfield and he tries to build something down the right.

  9. 88

    The Southampton home fans are still singing and they really will have something to sing about if the home side can hold on for two more minutes. Zabaleta and Maicon trade passes, looking for a way through in midfield.

  10. 87

    A good ball into the box from Clichy just eludes Aguero and is instead picked up by Dzeko. City are running out of time to turn this around.

  11. 86

    City give away a free-kick in midfield as Schneiderlin is caught by Milner. Ward-Prowse loses out to Kolarov as City pick up possession.

  12. 85

    There's a heart-in-mouth moment for City as Rodriguez is picked out by a Cork pass in bags of space in front of goal but the offside flag is up.

  13. 84

    Milner hooks the ball through the legs of Richardson and out to hand Southampton a throw-in.

  14. 83

    Lallana breaks down the right and Southampton players pile into the box but City manage to stop him getting a cross away.

  15. 83

    Clichy lifts in another ball and it's Hooiveld this time that gets on the end of it in the box, subduing the threat.

  16. 82

    Clichy's long ball up the pitch into the box is dealt with by Yoshida. Another ball in towards Dzeko seconds later is seen away by Cork.

  17. 81

    Goalscorer Steven Davis is brought off and replaced by youngster James Ward-Prowse as Southampton make their final change.

  18. 80

    A Kolarov corner is dealt with by the Saints defence and Lallana brings down the clearance to release Rodriguez through the middle. Hart comes out to clear.

  19. 79

    Hart scoops up the ball in the box under pressure from the advancing Davis and quickly disposes of it upfield.

  20. 78

    It's Hooiveld again that threatens to break for the Saints but he's held up in midfield. The home side win a free-kick inside their own half.
