Michael van Gerwen smashed Joe Murnan in a 5-1 victory which assured his progression through to the Last 16.

Van Gerwen spoke afterwards saying that despite it not being an outstanding performance he won and that was all that counted.

“It wasn’t an outstanding performance but I won the game and that’s all that counts, whereas the other day I played a phenomenal game and lost,” said Van Gerwen.

“It would be nice to win this tournament again but there is a long way to go yet and it’s going to be tough to beat the top players who are still left in.”
