Commentary

That's it for another year! Manchester City will return in August to defend their Premier League crown - and Southampton will be there with them in the top-flight of English football. Before then however, there is the small matter of a World Cup in Russia next month. Until then however, thank you for joining us - and have a good summer!
Wow. Just, wow. Manchester City left it late - boy, did they leave it late - but Gabriel Jesus' injury time winner means that Pep Guardiola's side become the first top-flight side in English football history to reach 100 points in a single season. Southampton unjustly come away with nothing - but Mark Hughes has done his job and the Saints are officially safe on the final game of the season. They will play in the Premier League next year - but the day belongs to their visitors, champions in spectacular fashion. Full time at St Mary's Stadium, it finishes Southampton 0-1 Manchester City.

Gabriel Jesus
Yellow Card
90' + 4' Jesus gets booked as he wheels away in celebration without his shirt but he won't care. The game restarts - and it goes deep for the final whistle! Manchester City have won at the very last gasp at St Mary's Stadium and made 100 points in the Premier League!
K. De Bruyne
Assist
90' + 4' What a score for City, right at the death. There are shades of Sergio Aguero with the timing - but this time, it's not to win the league, but to smash the triple-digit barrier. De Bruyne threads a looping long ball into the box on the last break of the game; Jesus meets it and chips neatly over McCarthy. What a finish!
Gabriel Jesus
Goal
90' + 4' No it isn't! Gabriel Jesus gets the winner! Manchester City finish the 2017-18 Premier League with 100 points!
90' + 2' Sane thinks he's away on goal, one-on-one after a throughball from the midfield; but the flag goes up and he is caught offside. That could be City's last chance of the game.
Cédric Soares
Yellow Card
90' + 1' Cedric gets booked deep in opposition territory for dissent to the linesman after a decision goes against him.
P. Højbjerg
Yellow Card
90' + 1' Yellow card Pierre-Emile Højbjerg
90' Long wins a free-kick for a foul from Danilo close to the City box and Saints steer it in towards goal; Bravo picks it out easily enough and the visitors start their attack once more. Three added minutes are on the way.
88' Foden wins a free-kick in the opposition half and City again look to press forward, only to be stalled once more as they give away a free-kick of their own for a foul on Tadic.
86' Southampton see off back-to-back corners and clear through McQueen, despite the efforts of Foden to cross into the box.
84' City pile on the pressure now as they look for a late winner to give them the 100 point haul, but Saints continue to frustrate them. as Hoedt heads away Sane's probing effort for a corner.
P. Foden
İ. Gündoğan
82' Foden is the final change for City, appearing to earn his winners' medal, and he replaces Gundogan.
S. McQueen
R. Bertrand
81' Bertrand is off now and Sam McQueen takes his place for the hosts.
81' Cedric goes close - but he is flagged for offside off the throughball from Tadic into the City box.
Brahim Díaz
Bernardo Silva
78' Silva is off for City - and Brahim Diaz is on for his Premier League winners' medal qualifying appearance. Only Phil Foden needs a game now - and he is on the bench.
78' Tadic! How on earth did Southampton not take the lead there? Flying off his line, Bravo misjudges a Romeu effort, who lays it wide to Tadic on the left to drill home - and Jesus somehow clears it off the line by a mere fraction.
75' City have 15 minutes to find a win here if they want to reach 100 points; as it stands, they will miss out on that particular milestone, along with the record for most away wins (16) and points (50) in a Premier League season.
73' Hoedt manages a desperate clearance from inside his own box as Jesus almost slips around; the City man appeals for a penalty off a potential handball but the referee waves him away.
J. Ward-Prowse
Yellow Card
71' Now Ward-Prowse gets a booking as he checks Sterling and the visitors have a free-kick.
70' Ward-Prowse lands a header from the centre of the box; it goes straight to Bravo though and City pump it downfield.
68' Southampton are starting to thread together more threatening attacks now, as off the back of that free-kick, Romeu threads a half-chance for Bertrand to cut around on the edge of the box before Stones nips in to clear.
66' Free-kick to Southampton on their right wing now as Fernandinho brings down Tadic.
S. Long
C. Austin
64' They make a second too; Shane Long replaces Austin up front.
J. Ward-Prowse
N. Redmond
64' Southampton make their first change now, with Redmond replaced by James Ward-Prowse.
62' From the follow-up corner, De Bruyne slots a powerful shot between the legs of the defence and just pulls it wide to the right.
61' How did City not score there? Sane blasts in a powerful shot from outside the box on the left and it pinballs all around the Stoke defence before an attempted follow-up from Sterling is deflected over the crossbar.
Gabriel Jesus
F. Delph
59' Gabriel Jesus replaces Delph as the first change of the game for City.
56' Sane whips the corner in, Silva heads on - and Fernandinho blasts it somewhere into the back of the stand with an awful finish.
55' Corner to City now on the right as Sterling manages to force Yoshida into dabbing the ball out near the goal-line under little pressure.
53' Laporte goes for an ambitious shot from 25 yards out on the left; the power behind it is impressive but it takes a wicked deflection off Stephens that allows the hosts to clear their lines.
51' Redmond concedes a corner as City press again and Sane taps it quick; the visitors aren't able to create something serious from it though and Saints win a free-kick a moment later after the opposition man brings down Bertrand.
49' De Bruyne drifts it well into the box and over the crowd of players towards the far post; Stones can't connect with his header though and it skips out for a goal-kick..
48' Free-kick to City, 22 yards out on the left edge, in almost the same position Southampton had one in the first half. A chance for De Bruyne to make some magic here for the champions...
46' We're back underway for the final half of the 2017-18 Premier League season and City press forward immediately from the restart. Sane goes up to chest a chip from the left inside the Saints box; he catches it with his wrist though and a free-kick is awarded against him for hand-ball.
Manchester City's triumphant season is in danger of ending on an anticlimax as the Sky Blues remain locked in a limp, goalless encounter at the break with Southampton. Great chances for Wesley Hoedt and Raheem Sterling have gone close enough a few times to suggest the sniff of a goal is on the cards - but neither have found the breakthrough yet. At half-time at St Mary's Stadium, it's Southampton 0-0 Manchester City.
45' There's no added time on the way, and with that, the referee blows for half-time.
44' Redmond looks to slip through down the left wing, chasing a ball from Hoedt in the centre; he is marginally ahead of the defence however and the linesman calls him for offside.
42' Southampton counter with a chance of their own now; Bertrand edges into the City box and plays a cut-back to Romeu who hoists it over the crossbar himself.
39' That's more like it from Sterling; the England man makes a smart break, cuts between two defenders and from outside the box, pushes his right-footed effort half a metre over the crossbar.
37' City for their part don't look to be chasing that 100-point record with anything approaching fierce determination. If anything, they seem rather pedestrian; similar to the way they folded against Huddersfield in a 0-0 draw last weekend.
35' Southampton have lost their initial bite from the opening exchanges but they still look to be on equal terms with their visitors so far. Austin cuts around the edge of the box, then cuts back when he can't find a way around Stones.
33' As it stands, a 0-0 draw would give Saints the point they need to mathematically secure safety on the off-chance that Swansea produce a 10-goal drubbing of Stoke. It would also give City 98 points - equal to the all-time top-flight record in English football, set by Liverpool in 1978-79 (if adjusted to three points for a win).
31' Laporte gives away a free-kick inside the centre circle as he clatters Austin. Southampton try to take it quickly but they are brought back by referee Andre Marriner.
30' Silva! The City man cuts into the box with the help of a short cross from the left and sees his shot blocked by Yoshida too. The visitors are starting to look more like the champions they are.
29' Sane's free-kick smashes into the Saints wall inside the box and the hosts see off the danger through Yoshida.
28' Now City have a dangerous free-kick of their own, 22 yards out in front after De Bruyne is sent sprawling by a Hoedt slide tackle. The Saints man is lucky to not get a booking for that effort; he appeared to come in studs up.
26' Close from Hoedt again! The defender once more finds the ball from the set-piece, on the far right side, and curls it into the side netting by a matter of inches.
24' Free-kick to Southampton now, 25 yards out on the left after Austin is fouled by Stones. A great chance for the Saints here...
22' Initially deflected out for a close-range throw, City's first attempt into the box from Gundogan is cleared only as far as Danilo, who drills low through a crowded box from 22 yards out, hooking it wide to the right.
20' De Bruyne tries from inside the left edge of the Saints area with a neat twist; he sees his effort deflected and City get a corner.
18' Sterling looks to track down a ball from Delph that veers into the Southampton box; the City man is caught by the linesman however and the flag is raised for offside.
16' City aren't just looking to become the first side in top-flight history to reach the 100 point milestone; they're also looking for the outright record of wins in a campaign, with 32. They currently hold the joint accolade of 31 with Tottenham Hotspur, who achieved it in 1960-61.
14' Tadic brings down Delph out on City's left wing and the visitors pick up a free-kick for the foul.
12' After a brief lull in forward-moving play, De Bruyne flicks on a neat pass for Sterling to chase into the Southampton box, slotting it neatly through the back-line; the City forward comes up shy of the ball before it drifts out for a goal-kick.
9' Hoedt's header was deemed to have brused Romeu on the way towards the crossbar and City come up with a free-kick in their own box for offside now.
8' Header from Hoedt! A Southampton corner is swung close from the right to the near post and the defender's header hits the woodwork before being smothered away by Stones. The hosts have started this game with a gutsy determination to get themselves on the board early.
7' Back down the other end, Saints have their first shot proper; Stephens carves a path into the City box, dribbles between two and shoots from 10 yards out in front. It's a soft finish but Bravo still bobbles it before collecting.
5' Silva spurs the first half-chance for City as he tries to corral a throughball in on the left from Gundogan, instead steering it well wide to the left.
3' Saints are the ones pushing early, determined to secure their Premier League status themselves today, and Tadic's neat tap-on from Cedric slips Austin down the right wing. The striker looks to cut back inside; Laporte speeds in to flick the ball away from his feet.
1' The final day of the 2017-18 Premier League is officially underway! Southampton come first; Bertrand floats a ball long for Austin, only to find Stones instead who heads it away some 10 yards out from the edge of the City box.
The teams are out at St Mary's Stadium and we're moments away from kick-off.
Hughes hasn’t ended on the winning side in back to back Premier League games since January 2017, when his Stoke side beat Watford and Sunderland.
Before becoming Manchester City manager in 2008, Saints boss Mark Hughes was unbeaten against them in the Premier League (W4 D4 L0). Since leaving, he’s won only two of his 13 league meetings against them (D3 L8).
Southampton haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last 12 Premier League games against City, shipping 27 goals in total.
Subs: Gabriel Jesus, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Vincent Kompany, Phil Foden, Brahim Diaz, Kyle Walker, Ederson.
MANCHESTER CITY (4-3-3): Claudio Bravo; Fabian Delph, John Stones, Danilo, Aymeric Laporte; Fernandinho, Ilkay Gündogan, Kevin de Bruyne; Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Leroy Sane.
Subs: Fraser Forster, Jeremy Pied, Manolo Gabbiadini, James Ward-Prowse, Sam McQueen, Shane Long, Josh Sims.
SOUTHAMPTON (5-4-1): Alex McCarthy; Ryan Bertrand, Wesley Hoedt, Cedric Soares, Maya Yoshida, Jack Stephens; Dusan Tadic, Oriol Romeu, Nathan Redmond, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg; Charlie Austin.
City make four swaps for their final game of the season; Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Fabian Delph and John Stones all start in place of Vincent Kompany, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Yaya Toure and Gabriel Jesus, with Fernandinho wearing the captain's armband.
Team news now and the hosts make a single enforced change to their starting XI; Maya Yoshida gets a start with Jan Bednarek ruled out through a head knock. Manolo Gabbiadini, the hero of the game against Swansea, is named on the bench.
For Southampton, it has been a case of contrasting fortunes. Ninth in 2016-17, they only lifted themselves out of the relegation zone last week with a season-deciding win against bottom-three rivals Swansea – and the Saints could still go down if they lose and the Welsh side win against Stoke with a 10-goal swing in their favour.
Two losses. Four draws. 31 wins. 97 points. It has been a stunning nine months at the Etihad Stadium, as records have tumbled in the face of the Sky Blues. City's top-flight title – their fifth overall – seemed a foregone conclusion by Christmas; it was officially confirmed a month ago. Now they could take the all-time record points haul in the top tier of English football too.
Hello and welcome to the final day of the 2017-18 Premier League season as champions Manchester City travel to Southampton looking to sign off their victorious campaign on a high. Pep Guardiola's side have been imperious winners this year – but could they become the first side in PL history to reach 100 points in a single campaign with a win at St Mary's Stadium?
