Arsenal grabbed a 98th-minute winner against Burnley - and no Premier League team has scored more late goals than the Gunners this season.
Alexis Sanchez cooly converted from the penalty spot deep into injury time at the Emirates to snatch a 2-1 win for Arsene Wenger's men on Sunday and that was the sixth time this season Arsenal have scored after the 90th minute in the Premier League.
Burnley were also on the wrong end of an injury-time winner in October when Laurent Koscielny struck in a 1-0 victory, a month after Santi Cazorla netted a last-gasp penalty to see off Southampton.
Olivier Giroud equalised at the death at Manchester United in November and repeated the trick in the dramatic 3-3 draw with Bournemouth at the start of 2017, while the Frenchman also bagged an 86th-minute winner against West Brom on Boxing Day.
Alexis Sanchez and Granit Xhaka have also scored in added on time, putting gloss on a 3-1 success over Bournemouth and 4-1 triumph over Hull respectively.
In total, Arsenal have scored 12 times after the 80th minute in the league this season, with half of those strikes coming in injury-time. In contrast, Middlesbrough have scored just once in the final 10 minutes, while Leicester, Southampton, Stoke and Sunderland have netted just a solitary goal each in stoppage time.
