Manchester City have struck no fewer than five goals during the final ten minutes of their last four matches – not something a nervy Arsenal side reeling from an injury time equaliser in their previous outing will want to hear.
The still raw memory of the Mathieu Flamini own goal that undid their spirited comeback against Swansea is sure to have the Emirates denizens shifting uneasily in their seats in the closing stages, especially if they read on any further.
City are 37/20 to register inside the last 15 minutes, a period during which the usually resolute Gunners backline has been caught napping on a few occasions this term.
Four of their miniscule nine concessions in home league action this season have come between the start of the 75th minute and full-time.
Meanwhile, a league table based purely upon the aforementioned period would see Arsenal way down in tenth place, a point behind Norwich City.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men would be top of the same division, four points clear despite having played two games less than the chasing pack.
Indeed they’d have plundered 22 goals (six more than any other side), a total that would virtually double Arsenal’s last 15 tally of 12 strikes.
With this in mind, taking the more comely 5/2 about Man City outscoring their hosts during the period beyond 75 minutes and one second looks the wager to be on.

Furthermore those speculating on the identity of the Citizen who will do the damage could do a lot worse than back Senegalese sensation Yaya Toure to score last at 15/2.
Only Luis Suarez and Wilfried Bony have snaffled more than his five goals inside the last 15 minutes this term.
