Price edges past Anderson to set up Cullen clash, Van Gerwen smashes Wright to begin Premier League Darts in Sheffield
Price will face Cullen who has a bye this week due to James Wade withdrawing due to illness and it was 'The Iceman' who took down Gary Anderson to begin the evening. He did so 6-4 with a 100.2 average.
It was one way traffic early on as Price fired his way into a 3-0 lead with an 81 checkout for a 12-darter. But despite breaking, Anderson broke straight back with a 128 checkout on the bull for 3-1.
He made it successive legs but in a theme of the contest, Price continued to edge away with a 113 checkout for 4-2 and a 90 checkout for 5-3 before sealing the deal after Anderson had kept the tie alive at 5-4.

Van Gerwen smashed Peter Wright who continues his form woes and will not head to Prague either - he lost 6-1 with a 103.2 average from Mighty Mike to reach the semi-finals.
Wright levelled up early on but Van Gerwen got stronger and stronger averaging around 108 to go 4-1 up. He continued to run riot with a 13-darter to go 5-1 up before sealing the deal to send Snakebite packing.
