Michael van Gerwen will pursue a fifth Premier League crown later on with Daryl Gurney standing in his way first of all.
Van Gerwen spoke ahead of this and admitted that while it would be phenomenal to win again. He also added that for him he doesn’t think he’s been good enough this season despite finishing top again and that there is room for improvement.
“It would be phenomenal to win a fifth Premier League title and it’s always a special night in the Play-Offs,” said Van Gerwen.
“We’ve been playing for 16 weeks and now it’s knockout – it’s all or nothing.
“I like to be the favourite but it’s a different day. I will be sharp – I have to make sure I don’t make any mistakes.
”There is a lot of room for improvement. I let myself down in a few games this season and I shouldn’t have put myself in this position.
“I’ve still had a 100 average over the season but my concentration level in this Premier League hasn’t been as good as in the last three years, so I can only blame myself for that.
“I need to make sure I get focused because it’s really important for me to do well.”
