Southampton v Manchester City: Carabao Cup quarter-final – live | Carabao Cup

If the first goal was sensational, this is outrageous! Palmer has a shot in the Saints box, but the ball ricochets and Saints clear. The home side go up the other end.

This has been coming! Sort of! And it’s a sensational goal! Ortega comes out of his box to head clear. The ball drops to Ward-Prowse, who thinks about shooting from 40 yards but hesitates and loses the ball. Phillips attempts to break, but Lyanco robs him out on the Saints right and advances down the wing. He crosses low towards Mara, who loses Walker and sweeps into the bottom right, a first-time fizzer that gives Ortega no chance. St Mary’s erupts!

Manchester City have won four of the last five League Cups. They’ve won five of the last seven. They’ve won six of the last nine. They know how to get the job done. They’re hot favourites to win tonight. They’re Manchester City.

Football can be a funny thing, though. Southampton may have lost their last two matches against City 4-0 and 4-1, and they may have lost their last six Premier League games straight. But they’re also coming off the back of a spirit-replenishing FA Cup win at Crystal Palace, and they did manage to hold City twice in the league last season. So you never know. Saints reached the final of this competition in 2017 and another visit to the semis could kick-start their season of struggle. They’ll not want to end the evening wondering. Kick-off is at 8pm GMT. It’s on!

Key events

84 mins: Rodri crosses from the right towards Haaland, but Lyanco is on hand to intercept and blooter clear. “City look tired and disinterested like Belgium looked in the World Cup,” suggests Jeff Sachs.

83 mins: Armstrong has run himself into the ground and is replaced by Southampton debutante Orsic.

82 mins: Some head tennis in the Saints box. This is backs-to-the-wall stuff now. But the ball breaks to Bazunu, who claims, then drops to the ground as keepers are wont to do these days. Textbook clock management.

80 mins: Foden swings the free kick harmlessly. Lyanco clears. Huge cheers from the home fans. Then a pause and a chance for Saints to catch their breath as Perraud accidentally catches Alvarez in the face. Argentina’s World Cup winner goes down, but with the clock ticking on, and no free kick coming their way, he gets back up soon enough.

79 mins: This match has a real basketball rhythm now. Foden storms down the middle of the park only to be cruelly hacked down by Diallo, who goes into the book. A free kick 30 yards out, just to the left of centre.

78 mins: City go up the other end, Gundogan dribbling into the box from the left and crossing low. Alvarez slides in, hoping to ram home, but again Bazunu smothers and won’t be beaten.

77 mins: Gundogan attempts to dance his way into the Saints box down the middle, but he’s swarmed. The hosts clear. The visitors come again. A long ball to look for Haaland. Bazunu comes romping out of his box to slam upfield. Walker-Peters sashays into the box from the right. He cuts back for Ward-Prowse, whose shot is on target but deflected towards Adams on the edge of the six-yard box. Adams slots home, but the flag goes up correctly for offside!

75 mins: On the touchline, Nathan Jones loudly orders his players to keep on moving. To be fair to his players, Saints haven’t stopped all night.

73 mins: De Bruyne wedges gracefully down the right in the hope of releasing Cancelo, but the flag goes up for offside. City’s play isn’t betraying any impatience or irritation … but a few of their players’ expressions are illustrating angst. Furrowed brows a-plenty.

71 mins: A City goal will change everything, and with this in mind, De Bruyne works his way down the right. He curls low for Haaland, who nearly meets the ball six yards out when sliding in, only to be denied by a brave smother at his feet by Bazunu.

70 mins: Ward-Prowse finds Walker-Peters just inside the City box on the right. A first-time shot is on, but Walker-Peters hesitates and the chance is gone. When he eventually pulls the trigger, he’s closed down in an instant.

69 mins: Foden works his way down the left and cuts back from the byline. The ball’s surely too far behind Haaland, but the big man elegantly hangs out a leg backwards, and attempts a back-heeled volley from 12 yards. It flies over the bar, but what ambition!

68 mins: A free kick for Saints out on the left. Ward-Prowse sends it towards Caleta-Car at the far post. City do just enough to defend, then launch a counter. But Saints are alive to their attacking intent, and bust a collective gut to get back into position. The counter breaks down.

66 mins: Walker-Peters fizzes a low cross through the City box from the right. Adams can’t telescope his leg to poke home at the far stick. He might have been a smidgen offside anyway.

65 mins: Armstrong chases a long pass down the right. He nearly bullies Laporte out of the way. The defender just about stands his ground to conceded a throw. From that, the ball’s worked infield to Elyounoussi, who takes too long to size up a shot from 25 yards. The City defense aren’t coping well with the Saints press at all.

63 mins: Phillips, whose first start in a City start has been disappointing, is replaced by Rodri. Nearly all of the big guns deployed now.

62 mins: City still haven’t had a shot on target. “As a Chelsea fan, this is so very empowering and comforting,” sighs Julian Menz, while he still can.

61 mins: Saints make a double change. Mara and Lavia make way for Adams and Elyounoussi.

60 mins: Walker-Peters tears down the right. He looks to have been held up by Ake, but when help arrives, he one-twos his way into the box and dinks into the City box. The visitors clear, but that’s got the crowd going again after a pensive few minutes of quiet City dominance.

58 mins: A couple of changes back at St Mary’s. Grealish and Djenepo’s gentle set-to was the last act for both players. They’re hooked for Haaland and Perraud respectively.

GOAL! Nottingham Forest 1-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers (Jimenez 64). Raul Jimenez turns in Matheus Cunha’s cross, and the midlands rivals are level at the City Ground!

55 mins: Grealish petulantly shoulder-checks Djenepo off the ball. There’s nothing much in it, and Grealish tells his man to get up. Djenepo does not comply. A chance for Saints to run some seconds off the clock, grabbed with both hands.

54 mins: De Bruyne tries to find a man yet again from the right. His cross is deflected into the sky by Lyanco, and Bazunu claims.

53 mins: De Bruyne curls into the Saints box from the right. Ward-Prowse clears. De Bruyne tries again from the same flank. He claims his cross from him is blocked by a Saints hand, but the referee’s not interested. Everything is going through De Bruyne, like that’s breaking news.

51 mins: City are dominating possession, though they’re misplacing passes on a worryingly regular basis at the moment, allowing Saints to break up their play. As a result, they’re going nowhere at the moment.

49 mins: Lavia considers shooting from the edge of the City D. He doesn’t. He may as well have done, though, because he lays off to Lyanco, who harmlessly sails a misdirected pass out for a goal kick.

48 mins: City have started the second half like Southampton did the first. A notable upsurge in time. Pep no doubt told them what’s what during the break.

46 mins: City nearly get back into the game within 55 seconds of the restart. De Bruyne draws three players towards him near the center circle before sweeping a ball down the inside-right channel for Alvarez. The World Cup winner strides into the box and flashes a shot across Bazunu … but inches wide of the left-hand post. Well, that would have changed everything.

Southampton get the second half underway. They haven’t made any changes at the break … but Manchester City certainly have. Three of them, though Haaland isn’t one of them. De Bruyne, Ake and Akanji replace Palmer, Gomez and Walker.

HALF TIME: Nottingham Forest 1-0 Wolverhampton Wanderers. Bit late with this update. So much so that they’ll be kicking off again at the City Ground any minute now. Apologies.

HALF TIME: Southampton 2-0 Manchester City

High-octane brilliance from Saints, who scored two crackers. Pep Guardiola has some thinking to do. “Maybe City need to change to different colored shirts at half time,” quips 90s comedian Stewart Lee Richard Hirst. (Kids, refer to No5 below.)

45 mins: Armstrong dribbles cutely down the left. It requires five City players to surround him and get the ball off him. The home fans enjoyed that.

44 mins: The rain is coming down steadily at St Mary’s now. Positively Mancunian.

43 mins: Cities are uncharacteristically ponderous. Verystrange. “Is this is a dream or are the Saints totally outplaying the mighty City?” asks drowsy Colum Fordham. “The two goals have both been stunners and Southampton have showed much more verve.”

41 mins: City win a corner down the left. Foden delivers. Caleta-Car deals with it. It’s better than City, but not by much. “Djenepo’s goal had more in common with another Le Tiss lob – his favorite of all time against former team-mate Tim Flowers,” argues Adam Channell.

39 mins: St Mary’s might not be at capacity tonight, but the home fans are in good voice. No wonder. Bazunu still hasn’t had any serious work to do.

37 mins: City have regained a semblance of control. They’ll not be panicking yet: they’ve only lost one of the last five matches they’ve played in which they’ve gone two goals behind.

35 mins: City finally show in attack, sort of. Grealish dribbles down the left and forces a corner. Foden swings it in. Bazunu punches clear with confidence. “Ederson might be a more important sub than Haaland,” suggests Joe Pearson.

34 mins: “I can’t be the only person to have been reminded by Djenepo’s goal of a certain other lob by a Southampton player,” writes Kári Tulinius. What a player he was! And he did it all while wearing a tinfoil hat.

32 mins: On the touchline, Pep Guardiola has the good grace to look extremely concerned. His team have been very much second best so far. Strange as it may sound, this scoreline, while ostensibly a shock, doesn’t flatter Southampton at all.
