Van On Road To Victory
Michael van Gerwen was on top form in the Premier League on Thursday 13th, as he trounced Wes Newton by a stunning 7-1 scoreline. The match at Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena was his sixth match of the tournament, and his fourth win.
Mighty Mike had hit a blip in the last two weeks, with one loss and a draw, but was on hand to remind everyone exactly why he is the World Number 1 with a scintillating display against his Lancashire opponent.
Van Gerwen averaged 105 points with each visit to the board – the highest average he’s thrown since his stunning 7-0 victory over Phil Taylor on February 6th. It was a great return to form for the Dutchman who sits in second place in the league, one point behind Peter Wright. The two play each other in Dublin in a fortnight, but before that, van Gerwen has to deal with Gary Anderson, who won the German Darts Championship last month. That match is next Thursday at the First Direct Arena in Leeds.
As ever, we’ll be right behind our E-Lites fan star and hopefully cheering him to victory! We believe he can, and if he believes he can too, anything is possible.
