“Michael van Gerwen must find balance between darts career and personal life” - Glen Durrant notices 'MVG' looks tired

Although he's currently sat 4th in the league table, Michael van Gerwen still has some work to do to ensure a spot in the playoffs and a return to finals night of the Premier League Darts.

Van Gerwen went down immediately in the quarterfinals last week in Rotterdam and is now fourth in the standings as a result. The top four after 16 days of play will eventually qualify for the playoffs, Van Gerwen currently has a two-point lead over number five Michael Smith.

On Night 13, 'Mighty Mike' takes on Peter Wright in the quarter-finals in Liverpool. Wright has had a poor campaign and dangles adrift at the bottom with just four points. "Van Gerwen looked a little tired in Rotterdam but he's got the ideal draw to bounce back with in Peter Wright," former Premier League Darts winner Glen Durrant assesses via Sky Sports.

"I know what it's like be bottom of the table and you feel embarrassed. Peter probably just wants it all over," 'Duzza' continues. "Michael just has to get that work life balance right, let his body breathe and go into the Premier League full of energy."
