Lloyd believes Price is best player in the world: "He is scoring very heavily and he is not missing doubles"
Price before the German Darts Championship had a winning streak of 17 and won the last three tournaments on the PDC Tour with a third televised title coming at the World Series of Darts Finals.
With Michael van Gerwen in particular inconsistent at points this year, 'Jaws', a former World No.1 himself believes it is now a tough task to beat him.
"Gerwyn is the best in the world right now and I say that because he is scoring very heavily and he is not missing doubles," Lloyd told the latest episode of The Darts Show podcast.
"He looks very sharp, he knows what he wants to achieve and he is going about it in a very professional manner - and it is very good to watch.
"If he is misses a dart a double, he still has time because at the World Series it felt like he was on a finish after nine darts every single time - or a double after 12 darts.
"When someone is scoring as heavily as he is you are going to keep giving yourself opportunities to get a shot because someone is all the way back and Gerwyn will have another three clear darts at the double.
"People are now having to up their game to stay with him."
