It’s been one hell of a season for Southampton, who have won the Premier Leagues title with a thrilling 2-1 win over Manchester City at Wembley.
It was a thrilling finale that ended in a thrilling shootout, with City scoring a late equaliser.
But for a couple of minutes, it seemed like Southampton were going to win it all.
City’s first real chance came when defender Ryan Bertrand was caught out by a long ball from midfielder Matija Nastasic, who got past a couple City defenders and headed it into the bottom corner.
And Southampton’s goal did little to dampen the mood.
City had a penalty appeal turned down, but after the restart City had a clear opening.
The keeper, a young Spaniard, seemed to have conceded a penalty for a foul on Nastassic when he stepped up and fired the ball into the path of Bertrand, who made no mistake from the spot.
It wasn’t until after half-time that Southampton finally found their rhythm.
In the last 20 minutes, the visitors seemed to settle and take control of proceedings.
With Nastad’s free-kick finding the far post, Bertrand’s free kick was turned over by Nastosic and the ball bounced off the bar.
The game was about to turn on its head, however, when substitute Harry Kane made a wonderful run down the left to send in a beautiful cross from the left.
But it wasn’t to be for Southampton.
City equalised just as the break was starting to give, when Nastasić took the ball and put it through Bertrand who headed in a brilliant finish from close range.
The win moves Saints to within five points of the top four, with two games remaining.
