Tottenham can label themselves as the new comeback kings of the Premier League with a major record broken courtesy of the point picked up against Arsenal. Spurs had to come from behind twice to claim a point in the North London Derby with captain Son Heung-min netting both goals.
From six Premier League games played so far this season, Tottenham have achieved 14 points with four wins and two draws. A combination of belief and defensive solidity has seen Spurs either keep a clean sheet or come from behind to take something from a game in each of the league encounters so far this season.
Clean sheets came against Manchester United and Bournemouth while eight points have already been won from losing positions and the latest comeback has seen Spurs set a new Premier League record. As posted on their official website, the club can now call themselves the 'comeback kings' with the draw against Arsenal taking Spurs above Manchester United in the table for points won from losing positions.
A club statement read: «In taking a point from Sunday's north London derby, despite having trailed twice in the clash, we have now taken more points from losing positions than any other side in Premier League history. That point saw us edge in front of Manchester United (427) and to the top of that respective table. Arsenal (392), Liverpool (390) and Chelsea (360) complete the top five.
»So far this season, we have collected eight points from losing positions — that amounts to 57% of our total points at this stage (14)." As the final stat reveals, the bulk of league points secured under Ange Postecoglou have arrived with Spurs a goal down and the 58-year-old has praised the character shown by his players this past weekend.
