Lloyd backs Chisnall for tenth Premier League spot: "The run that he's had at the World Championship has spoken volumes"

With a tenth and final spot in the 2021 Premier League Darts set to be decided in due course, debate has begun about who will claim it and in the mind of Colin 'Jaws' Lloyd, he believes Dave Chisnall is the player to pick.

Chisnall produced a phenomenal display to smash Michael van Gerwen 5-0 in the Quarter-Finals before losing to Gary Anderson in the semi-finals and Lloyd believes that he shouldn't be left out on the basis that he failed to follow up the win over the former World Number One.

"I think the run that he's had at the World Championship has spoken volumes," said Lloyd on The Darts Show podcast. "He's back playing the way we know he can play.

"Some people say, 'Oh, he was disappointing. He had that win against MVG and he didn't really perform against Gary Anderson'. Well, you know what? That's a lot of expectation to build up to again. You've only had one sleep in between. He was getting a bit tired and he missed a few shots."

"I think Chizzy has got his mind in the right place. He's got the set up in the right way. I think he spoke about that, he's got his darts sorted out and I think he's great value and he's great entertainment."
