Price believes Van Gerwen whitewash will knock his confidence: "It will hurt Michael - and I hope it hurts!"

Gerwyn Price sealed Night Seven of Premier League Darts becoming only the second player to win multiple nights this season. Sealing Nottingham glory, he edged past Chris Dobey and said that the crowd being behind him leads to results.

"I missed a couple of doubles and kept players in the game so I had to dig in," he said to Sky Sports Darts.

"I knew I was playing well, I have been playing well for the last couple of weeks, and thankfully I won [here]. If I hit my doubles, nine times out of 10 I think I'll win games.

"The last couple of years the crowd have been on my back but they have been fantastic with me [this year]. If the crowd are behind me it shows I can play good darts and win nights.

But also it is a night that saw Michael van Gerwen thrashed by Dobey and Price hopes it hurts the Green Machine who has been otherwise imperious in the past few weeks.

"Hopefully this is momentum for me for the rest of the season. Losing will knock Michael [Van Gerwen] back a bit, especially 6-0. It will hurt Michael - and I hope it hurts!"
