Raymond van Barneveld looked to be heading towards a 3rd Premier League win last night only to be stopped by Gary Anderson who picked the pocket of the 5x World Champion restricting him to a share of the points.

The Dutchman spoke afterwards and admitted it’s a tough competition this year and anything could happen in the next few weeks.

Van Barneveld now sits 5th in the table with 5 points from 5 played one point behind Rob Cross in 4th and 3 points from Van Gerwen in 1st.

“I could have won that but I missed those doubles at the end and Gary’s 144 was a great finish.”

“When I was 4-2 down I’d have been happy with a draw, but if you’re leading 6-4 you think you might win and that’s when things go wrong. It’s a tough competition this year and anything could happen in the next few weeks.”
