SOU vs MCI As It Happened
Key moments so far
- Southampton host Manchester City in the Premier League
- Dominant display from the title contenders, with goals from Haaland, Grealish and Alvarez
- Sékou Mara comes off the bench to give Saints a short-lived lifeline
- HALF TIME: Southampton 0-1 Man City
FULL TIME: Saints 1-4 Man City
The heartbreak continues for Southampton who are beaten by title contenders Man City. Saints held their own in a first half of football that saw them frequently on the front foot but Erling Haaland's opener handed City the only push they needed to go on. A goal from Sékou Mara gave Saints a glimmer of hope, but that was quickly cancelled out as Julián Alvarez netted from the spot. Eight to go.
Lull in the action
With the visitors confidently ahead and just minutes left to play, the tempo has decreased significantly at St Mary's. City are in complete control of the ball.
Manchester City substitution: Kalvin Phillips replaces Rodrigo Hernández Cascante
Manchester City substitution: Sergio Gómez replaces Nathan Aké
Southampton substitution: Romain Perraud replaces Theo Walcott
Southampton substitution: Ibrahima Diallo replaces Roméo Lavia
One last roll of the dice from Rubén Sellés as a further two changes are made. Lavia forced off after picking up a knock.
Bazunu forced into action again
The pressure from City is relentless as Gavin Bazunu is forced into another save at St Mary's. Bernardo Silva looks set to add a fifth for the visitors but with plenty of bodies in the box, Saints limit the damage.
Alvarez converts from the spot
No hesitation from Julián Alvarez who fires his spot kick confidently past Gavin Bazunu.
Julián Álvarez (74’) | 1 – 4
VAR Decision: Penalty awarded for Manchester City [Kevin De Bruyne] was confirmed
Kyle Walker-Peters concedes a penalty.
Mara pulls one back
Instant impact from the Saints substitutes as Moussa Djenepo dances his way past three Manchester City defenders before crossing the ball into Sékou Mara who remains cool and composed before firing his shot past Ederson. Game on?
Sékou Mara (71’) | 1 – 3
Manchester City substitution: Julián Álvarez replaces Erling Haaland
City's leading goalscorer leaves the pitch.
Southampton substitution: Moussa Djenepo replaces Carlos Alcaraz
Southampton substitution: Sékou Mara replaces Kamaldeen Sulemana
Rubén Sellés can now make a double change.
Haaland adds a third
The visitors extend their advantage at St Mary's as Erling Haaland nets a bicycle kick in front of the Man City fans.
Erling Haaland (67’) | 0 – 3
Bazunu makes crucial save
Great initiative from Gavin Bazunu who recovers the ball from the feet of Bernardo Silva. City are firmly in control in SO14.
Saints still fighting
A dizzying run from Kyle Walker-Peters who makes his way to the edge of the area before he's dispossessed. The fight is still there from the Saints players.
Southampton substitution: Stuart Armstrong replaces Mohamed Elyounoussi
A first change for Saints.
VAR Decision: Goal awarded for Manchester City [Jack Grealish] was confirmed
After a brief VAR check for offside, City's second goal is confirmed.
Grealish makes it two
Kevin De Bruyne is once again the goalmaker as he slots in Jack Grealish in plenty of space on the edge of the area. No hesitation from Grealish, who forces a smart save from Bazunu before firing home on the rebound.
Jack Grealish (57’) | 0 – 2
Manchester City substitution: Bernardo Mota Veiga de Carvalho e Silva replaces Riyad Mahrez
Manchester City substitution: Kyle Walker replaces John Stones
The first of a double change.
Yellow Card for Erling Haaland (Manchester City)
The goalscorer is in the book after catching Armel Bella-Kotchap late.
Gündogan inches wide
The visitors really showing their flair now as they break down the Saints defence. It's a powerful move from Ilkay Gündogan who works his way past a couple of players before firing just inches wide of the post. A narrow escape.
Saints looking for an early equaliser
Theo Walcott earns a free-kick in the attacking half early on in the second half. James Ward-Prowse finds the head of Armel Bella-Kotchap inside the area but he fails to control the ball and it fires high and wide of the goal.
Back to work 👊
Let's go, Saints!
HALF TIME: Saints 0-1 Man City
Haaland gives City the advantage
Heartbreak for Saints who concede after an encouraging passage of attacking play. Kevin De Bruyne finds Erling Haaland who makes no mistake this time with his headed effort.
Erling Haaland (45’) | 0 – 1
Another golden opportunity slips away for Rubén Sellés's men. Roméo Lavia works his way past Rodri before cutting in Kamaldeen Sulemana, who slices the ball across the goal. He beats Ederson but there's no Saints player there to greet it.
Haaland fails to find the target
A little more fight from the Norwegian who has been kept quiet for a large part of this game. Kevin De Bruyne again the maker of the opportunity, with Erling Haaland towering over Kyle Walker-Peters to get a head to the ball. There's momentary cheers from the away fans who think the ball is in the back of the net, but his headed effort is uncharacteristically off target.
Bazunu denies Haaland
Kevin De Bruyne plays the ball into Erling Haaland who beats Jan Bednarek to the ball but his first touch is poor and it's an easy save for Gavin Bazunu.
Alcaraz clears from the corner
City creep up on Saints and Jan Bednarek is forced to get low and concede a corner. It's another Kevin De Bruyne delivery but Rúben Diaz is beaten by Charly Alcaraz in the area.
Wasted opportunity for Saints
James Ward-Prowse plays the free-kick short to Ainsley Maitland-Niles, the pair play a quick one-two before the Arsenal loanee curls in a wasteful cross into the area, with no Saints player there to receive.
Yellow Card for John Stones (Manchester City)
The England international finds himself in the book for a late challenge on Charly Alcaraz.
VAR Decision: Penalty not awarded for Manchester City  was confirmed
Calls for handball as Jack Grealish forces James Ward-Prowse to deflect, but the appeals are waved off by Robert Jones and shortly thereafter, VAR.
Silky footwork from Kamaldeen
Beautiful footwork from Kamaldeen Sulemana who gets his way past Manuel Akanji before firing a ball across the six-yard-box. He fails to find the head of a Saints player, but it's clear the youngster is adding a much needed spark at St Mary's.
Haaland yet to find his feet
Man City starboy Erling Haaland has been kept quiet in the early stages at St Mary's, as he goes in for just his third touch of the contest he's dispossessed by Roméo Lavia.
Encouraging signs from Saints
More encouraging play from Saints as Kyle Walker-Peters charges down the left flank and into the area, his cross in is deflected back to Moi Elyounoussi who bends a ball into Charly Alcaraz but it's got a little too much on for the Argentine.
Saints utilising the left flank
A lovely bit of link-up play between Moi Elyounoussi and Kamaldeen Sulemana down the left-flank provides another opportunity for Saints to challenge the City defence but a decisive challenge breaks up the attack.
Kamaldeen runs out of steam
A huge opportunity missed for Saints as Kamaldeen Sulemana finds himself free to hit the counter from Kevin De Bruyne's corner. The Ghanaian international charges the length of the pitch, going toe-to-toe with City's Nathan Ake but the youngster takes it too far and Ederson comes out to make an easy grab.
City in control
There's no doubt that it's Pep Guardiola's side that have controlled the game in the early stages, with the Saints defence being forced into action a number of times. Two corners in quick succession for City, Gavin Bazunu clears the first with a strong punch before Saints are given an opportunity to hit the counter.
Man City building
A loose headed clearance from Ainsley Maitland-Niles falls straight into the path of Erling Haaland as Man City force numbers into the box. It looks dangerous from the visitors before Kyle Walker-Peters makes a sliding tackle to clear the threat.
Bazunu denies Grealish
The visitors are given far too much space to charge forward as the ball is worked from right to left as Ilkay Gündogan lays off Jack Grealish. A vital save from Gavin Bazunu who denies the England international from 15-yards-out.
Alcaraz finds space
Charly Alcaraz slices the ball across the six-yard-box but there's nobody inside the area to tap it home. A positive start from Rubén Sellés's men.

Southampton have always been so tough there, the game we made it to 100 points they were much better than us, we've drawn before. It's tough and I have a feeling tomorrow won't be an exception."pep guardiolaon facing southampton
I see a team that wants to do things, wants to work hard. It’s a positive environment and we didn’t have victory in the last four games but we had some good performances, we were close in some games, but we keep going."rubén Selléson facing manchester city
