THE LOWDOWN

HEAD-TO-HEAD
All-time meetings:
James Wade 5-8 Mensur Suljovic
Previous meeting: James Wade 6-3 Mensur Suljovic

JAMES WADE

  • James Wade has lost only one of his opening five matches and sits at the top of the Premier League table on leg difference from Rob Cross, Michael van Gerwen and Gerwyn Price.
  • He backed up his win over Michael van Gerwen on night four by whitewashing Daryl Gurney 7-0 in Aberdeen last Thursday with an average of 109.59 - the highest average in the Premier League this year.
  • His finishing against Gurney was almost perfect with seven hits from nine attempts and a highest checkout of 158. Overall, Wade has the highest tournament checkout percentage with 51.7% and no player has recorded more ton plus checkouts; Wade has six overall and five during his last three matches.

MENSUR SULJOVIC

  • Mensur Suljovic lost 7-3 against Gerwyn Price last time out and he has now won only one of his five matches in the 2019 Premier League.
  • Against Price he had his throw broken in the opening leg of the match and never really recovered. The Welshman was in fine form on the doubles hitting seven out of nine attempts to give Suljovic little chance of getting back into the game.
  • One of the features of Suljovic’s game is his ability to take out big finishes, however in this year’s Premier League he has only mustered one ton-plus checkout during his opening five matches.

THE PREDICTION

James Wade has made a very impressive start to the 2019 Premier League season. He missed out on selection for the tournament last year but has come back with a bang. He has the joint highest tournament average and the highest tournament checkout percentage which prove how well he has been performing. Mensur Suljovic is struggling to show his best form consistently in the Premier League and really needs to pick up points to avoid a scrap against elimination. The Austrian ace has had the better of the results against Wade on the big TV stage but the majority of those wins came prior to last year and Wade is now arguably playing better than he has in a number of years. The 2009 Premier League champion can maintain his excellent Premier League form with another two points from this game.
