Mensur Suljovic 4-3 Gary Anderson
This could well be classed as a must win game for Mensur Suljovic in his battle to avoid elimination. He faces the unenviable task of facing Michael van Gerwen in Liverpool next week, and with ninth-placed Peter Wright making a return to form last weekend he is definitely under pressure to pick up points to avoid slipping into the elimination zone.
Gary Anderson secured an important win last week against Simon Whitlock to move within touching distance of the top four. Although the win against Whitlock was only his second in the 2018 Premier League season he had been playing well enough to suggest he would turn some of his draws into wins.
Suljovic has tasted success against Anderson previously on the big TV stage, most notably with a win in the Champions League of Darts final last September having also defeated the Scotsman in the group stage of the same tournament. Anderson admits that he finds Suljovic to be a very awkward player to play against as his rhythm doesn’t suit his own rapid approach to the oche but he proved at the Grand Slam of Darts last November that he can adapt and come out on top.
Anderson does enter this match in better form and under less pressure than Suljovic and he looks capable of making it consecutive wins in the Premier League for the first time this season.
