Stats show Tottenham are very resilient and Manchester United are not

It’s that time of the Premier League season when things start to get really interesting. There’s a huge battle going on for the title, the European tickets and to not be relegated to the Championship.

Therefore, it’s quite interesting to look at how resilient teams in the English top flight are. We took a look at the statistics provided by Transfermarkt, in order to check which teams have been most capable of avoiding a loss while suffering a deficit during a match.

It appears Tottenham are by far the most resilient team in the Premier League. The Spurs needed to come from behind on 12 occasions, and have gained 18 points while doing so. Meaning they have won five times, while registering three draws and four losses.

West Ham United are ranked second in this category, as the Hammers have gained 12 points while being down at least one goal in 12 matches. West Ham failed to take a point six times, but won (3) or drew (3) on six occasions as well.

League leaders Leicester City, Arsenal and Swansea City round out the top five, as all three have gained 11 points coming from behind. Meanwhile, Manchester United are way down with only four points.

The Red Devils suffered a deficit on ten occasions, but have been able to win just once, while losing eight times. Norwich City, Aston Villa and Watford have not been able to win when falling behind this season.
