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.

#5 Chelsea – 5 Goals
Chelsea Coach Mauricio Pochettino
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 Manager Marco Silva
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.
