5 Premier League Teams With Most Goals Conceded After 90 Mins

The English Premier League is home to arguably the most competitive teams on the planet. They push to score from the first blast of the whistle to the very last, so even the slightest dip in concentration can prove to be deadly.

Of course, it is impossible to maintain the same level of focus throughout the 90 minutes, with most teams letting their guard down toward the end of the match. Today, we will take a look at five teams that have suffered the most for taking it easy in injury time. Here are five Premier League sides that have conceded the most goals after 90 minutes in the 2023-24 season.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have not lived up to expectations this season, especially in the Premier League. They are currently toiling in 11th place in the English top-flight rankings, having picked up only 31 points from 23 games. The Blues have conceded 39 goals in the Premier League this season, five of which have come after 90 minutes.

Luckily, they have only lost one point as a consequence of their concentration lapse. On December 24, 2023, Wolverhampton Wanderers, beat them 2-1 at Molineux Stadium, thanks to a 90+3′ minute strike from Matt Doherty.

#4 Fulham – 5 Goals

Fulham have conceded five goals in injury time in the Premier League this season, dropping five invaluable points as a result. On November 4, 2023, the Cottagers lost 1-0 to Manchester United, thanks to Bruno Fernandes’ winner in the 91st minute. Then, on February 2, 2024, they were held to a 2-2 draw at Burnley, with David Fofana scoring both goals for the hosts, including the equalizer in the 91st minute.

Had Marco Silva’s side held on for a little longer, they would have leapfrogged Chelsea (13th to 11th) in the Premier League rankings.

#3 Sheffield United – 6 Goals

The Blades dropped two more points on December 22, 2023, as Nicolo Zaniolo popped up with a last-gasp equalizer for Aston Villa in a 1-1 draw.

Chris Wilder’s team are currently languishing in 20th place in the Premier League rankings, 10 points away from safety.

Again, on December 9, Liverpool sealed a stoppage-time 2-1 win over Roy Hodgson’s men, with Harvey Elliot popping up with the winner in the first minute of injury time.

#1 Tottenham Hotspur – 9 Goals

North London powerhouse Tottenham Hotspur have conceded a whopping nine goals after the 90-minute mark in the 2023-24 Premier League season. However, said goals have not cost them much, as they have dropped just three points due to their injury-time deficiencies.

So far, Wolverhampton Wanderers have been the only team to benefit from Spurs’ lack of focus toward the end. In their Premier League meeting on November 11, 2023, Wolves scored two injury-time goals through Pablo Sarabia (90+1′) and Mario Lemina (90+7′), respectively, to secure a 2-1 victory over Ange Postecoglou’s men.

Spurs are currently sitting in fifth place in the Premier League rankings, two points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa.
