Red-hot Michael van Gerwen goes up against former world No 1 Gerwyn Price as the Premier League roadshow rides into Nottingham on Thursday night – live on Sky Sports Action.

Van Gerwen finally ended his two-and-a-half year wait for a European Tour title at the weekend, to claim his first ranking title of 2022.

The Dutch ace, who sits top of the Premier League after winning the last two league phase nights, continued his return to form with victory in Hildesheim.

He now returns to action aiming to claim a hat-trick of wins at Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena where Welshman Price awaits him.

Price missed last week’s Brighton night due to an injured hand and although he is “not 100 per cent” he has recovered sufficiently to return to action.

“It’s got box office written all over it, hasn’t it?” Laura Turner told Sky Sports. “It will be interesting to see how it goes.

“Michael has picked up his form and he’s now more consistent throughout a tournament, which is something he lacked over the last 18 months or so where he can put in that massive performance but not follow it up.

“Back in Exeter I think he dropped just three legs on his way to victory. The other thing is that Michael is hungry, isn’t he? Although, you can’t say whether Gerwyn will be hungry either.

“It will be his first time back in Premier League action since losing that No 1 spot. I wouldn’t want to call it to be honest.

“They’re both going to want to win that match for sure.”
