The Arsenal match programme stated 42,789 as the attendance against Man City.
Seems an overestimate. Most websites show capacity as between 42640 and 42679.

Thanks very much for this query, Charlie8182 and nordenvillain, much appreciated.

The capacity of Villa Park is 42,657, according to the FA Handbook for 2023, which is the figure quoted in the OP for the Rules and Divisions thread.
The rules state that the BBC figure is the one that I use to allocate points.

Unfortunately, this BBC figure has been late (by several days) this season, more than once.
There is still no BBC figure published for Villa v Manc City on the match report page.

When this happens I go to the website linked above, which gives Villa home crowds, usually within 24/48 hours.

As the figure quoted in your programme is more than the capacity, Charlie, I suggest that nordenvillain may be correct re the overestimation of the crowd!

I hope this has cleared up the issue you have raised. Thanks.
