FULL-TIME: Saints 1-1 Man City
WHAT. A. POINT. Saints have ended City's winning run and are more than worthy of their point. Kyle Walker-Peter's sidefooted effort gave his side the lead after seven minutes before Armando Broja looked to make it two on 23 but for the offside flag. Aymeric Laporte levelled it as City looked to press, but Saints held on for a HUGE point.

Southampton substitution: Mohamed Elyounoussi replaces Nathan Redmond
A switch at the break for Saints.
HALF-TIME: Saints 1-0 Man City
Saints deservedly ahead at the break thanks to Kyle Walker-Peters' outside of the boot finish after just seven minutes. It could have been two had Armando Broja timed his run well, but the offside flag ruled out his 23rd minute goal. It could well have been worse too.
