Manchester United have temporarily moved to the top of the list in terms of Premier League teams to get the most points from losing positions.
The Red Devils came back 1-0 against to beat West Ham 3-1 in yesterday’s Premier League clash, proving once again that they are the kings of the comeback.
United also recently won 3-2 at Southampton after going 2-0 down at halftime, and this latest result means they have surpassed Tottenham as the team with the most points for losing positions in Premier League history …

However, this could end up being short-lived as Tottenham could come back to the top if they come from behind to beat Arsenal in today’s North London Derby.
The Spurs should be the favorites against the Gunners, but it is quite frequent that we see that the winning team has to come back in these derby.
This was exactly what happened in their last meeting in July, when Alexandre Lacazette scored the first goal for Arsenal before goals from Son Heung-min and Toby Alderweireld gave José Mourinho’s team three points.
For now, however, this is an impressive record for United, rising to fourth place in the Premier League table.
