August 23 – Despite the absence of Luton Town’s Kenilworth Road in this week’s attendance figures due to its ongoing development, the second match-day of the Premier League recorded an average of 97.38% capacity as 303,936 fans took their seats to watch the weekend’s action unfold.
West Ham United are responsible for both the largest crowd and the highest capacity percentage of the week in their 3-1 victory over Chelsea which saw British record signing Moises Caicedo have a debut to forget after giving away a last minute penalty which Lucas Paqueta scored.
The average attendance dipped 1.5% below last week’s showing.

Match-day 3 kicks off on Friday night as a struggling Chelsea side face newcomers Luton Town.
