From Manchester United's "Fergie Time" triumphs to Sergio Aguero's 94th-minute title-clinching goal for Manchester City, England's Premier League has long been synonymous with dramatic comebacks.The result is that the team that scores first stands an increasingly strong chance of winning, with statistics revealing that comeback victories are at a 10-year low in the English top flight.Since a spike of 14.18 percent in 2012-13, the percentage of teams coming from behind to win per season has successively dropped, from 10.81 percent in 2013-14 to 10.10 in 2014-15 to 9.84 in the current campaign.Several teams are subverting the theory, with Arsenal, West Ham United, Crystal Palace, Everton, Liverpool, Stoke City, West Bromwich Albion and Aston Villa having all picked up more points on the road than at home.
