Scoring late is often seen as a hallmark of champions.

Nicklas Bendtner's 93rd-minute winner at Hull on Saturday was the 19th goal Arsenal have scored in the closing stages of games this Premier League season.

No other team has been so successful at hitting the back of the net after the 75th minute this term.

Our table below outlines the number of late goals scored by the 'Big Four' clubs over the last three campaigns.

Arsenal have already surpassed last term's tally of 17 but are still eight goals short of the 27 strikes amassed by the Gunners during the 2007/08 season.
