  • It's all over. City do what they need to do in the title race but - in the first half certainly - they were given a real test by Southampton before running out comfortable winners. The second goal, clearly offside, certainly the big talking point.

  • Nasri curls the free-kick out of play, but it matters not.

  • Lallana fouls Zabaleta. This City free-kick on the right may be the last action of the match.

  • City decide to eat up a few more seconds by keeping the ball in the corner.

  • City want a free-kick after Fonte tackles Jovetic, but he clearly got the ball and the hosts have to settle for a corner.

  • We're into three added minutes here.

  • Hard to see what happened there as Toure competed with Lambert for the ball. He's back on his feet now.

  • Toure down injured in the centre circle as the clock ticks over to 90 minutes.

  • Cynical foul from Ward-Prowse on Toure, catching the City man on the back of the calf with his studs. Toure not at all happy with that, and there's a bit of handbags. Foy tries to calm things down and, luckily for Ward-Prowse, keeps his cards in his pocket.

  • Wanyama wins the ball back for Southampton in midfield, and then wins a free-kick.

  • Save! Kolarov's cross from the left finds Navas beyond the far post. He tees up Toure on the edge of the box. He sidefoots low towards the bottom corner, but Gazzaniga gets the slightest touch on it to turn the ball onto the post.

  • Gazzaniga comes out to punch, but the ball comes off Wanyama's head and evades the keeper. Fonte on hand to complete the clearance.

  • The corner is cleared and City are breaking once again. Lovely ball from Kolarov finds Navas. City ultimately win a corner as Lovren turns the ball behind.

  • Southampton win a corner on the left. Certainly played a full part in this match despite the one-sided look to the scoreboard.

  • Almost two in two minutes for the second time this afternoon as Negredo is played in but fails to slot the ball past the advancing Gazzaniga, who makes a decent block. Negredo could have dinked the keeper there or looked to go round him. Hasn't scored since January, and it showed there.

  • GOAL - JOVETIC! First home Premier League goal for Jovetic as Navas' devious early cross from the right evades two defenders and Gazzaniga to give Jovetic a tap-in.

  • Final substitution of the afternoon as Cork makes way for Wanyama in the Southampton midfield.

  • Toure goes into the book for an outrageous dive after bursting into the Southampton area. No complaints there.

  • Jovetic replaces Silva, who's been magnificent. Was way offside for that second goal, though.

  • Lambert again in behind the City defence but can't keep the ball in play.
