A noticeable trend has emerged during the early stages of Sporting Kansas City's 2021 MLS campaign: if Manager Peter Vermes' side falls behind, count them out at your own peril.

After falling behind early on Saturday night, Sporting (4-2-1, 13 points) hit three consecutive goals past the San Jose Earthquakes (3-4-0, 9 points) to claim a riveting 3-1 victory at PayPal Park and jump to second place in the Western Conference table.
