Seagulls flying high on the pitch as fans top the week’s attendance chart

September 5 – The fourth match day of the Premier League recorded the lowest average percentage capacity so far this season with 97.904% of seats being taken, down from 98.91% on match week 1.

The best turnout of the week goes to Brighton and Hove Albion, as the Amex filled to 99.35% of its maximum capacity to witness a resounding win over Newcastle United, earmarked by a superb hat-trick from 18-year-old Evan Ferguson.

The defeat marks the third straight loss for Howe’s men after an electric opening versus Aston Villa, losing to Man City, Liverpool, and now the seagulls.

Liverpool’s partially-renovated Anfield was host to a fairly poor Aston Villa, as TV onlookers saw a reduced capacity inside the ground. The capacity figure is an estimation based on multiple reports and trends in Liverpool fan attendances. The stadium is expected to be fully completed in the coming weeks.

Fans now have to wait until September 16 before returning to their home grounds. Match week 5 kicks off at the Molineux stadium as Wolves host an in-form Liverpool side.
