Michael van Gerwen last claimed the World Matchplay back in 2016 and he started that campaign off with a bang in a whitewash win over Jamie Caven at the Winter Gardens.

When Van Gerwen claimed the win over Caven, ‘Jabba’ went and threw water over his head which prompted Wayne Mardle to say at the time it was the only thing he could hit all night.

Mighty Mike is the favourite to claim the title in a few weeks in Blackpool and you can view the odds for the 32 players involved here.
