Ranking every Premier League stadium by how full they were on opening weekend

Arsenal FC v Brighton & Hove Albion - Premier League

The 2019/20 Premier League season is officially in full swing.

After three months without the most competitive league in the world, football fans around the world rejoiced as some of Europe's finest teams returned to action in August.

Arsenal and Liverpool are the only two clubs to maintain a 100% record through the first two weekends, while champions Manchester City dramatically dropped points against Tottenham.

At the other end of the table, Watford seemingly haven't recovered from their FA Cup final thrashing and are joined in the relegation zone at this very early stage by Southampton and Newcastle.

However, two weeks of action also means that all 20 clubs have now hosted a game, which was a pretty momentous occasion at Bramall Lane after 12 years away from the division.
