Looking forward to the Premier League darts quarter-final in Newcastle

After a changed format, the Cazoo Premier League of darts will have the quarter final on May 26th where all eight players will play.

The night will consist of rank one playing rank eight, likely to be Jonny Clayton vs Gary Anderson.

The second match will be rank four vs rank five which is likely to be a repeat of the 2020 World Championship semi-final of Peter Wright vs Gerwyn Price.

The third match will be rank two vs rank seven which is likely to be Michael Van Gerwen vs Michael Smith and the final match of the night is likely to be James Wade vs Joe Cullen.

Darts fans in the Toon will be treated to a night of thrilling darts with the second match of the evening set up to be a match to remember.

Wright and Price have always had feisty affairs after their clash in the 2020 World Championship which saw the players leave the stage in silence.

Both players are known for their power scoring, just another reason why this match will be an entertaining watch.

Clayton vs Anderson would be a great way to start the night.

Although Anderson has had a bad Premier League campaign, it is no secret that the back-to-back world champ is one of the best players in the history of the game.

This contrasts massively to last year’s Premier League winner, Clayton, who doesn’t have history to back him up but has had a mega 18 months flying up the World rankings.

The clash of Michaels in the third game of the night will hopefully be another example of Van Gerwen’s redemption after a shaky few years.

The Dutchman has been showing what he was always capable of again this year and has won three nights so far in this Premier League campaign as well as having a +44 leg difference.

Smith, however, has a -11 leg difference as well as being the only player in this year’s Premier League yet to win a night.

The likely last game of the evening is Wade vs Cullen and will definitely be a clash of styles.

Wade’s slow throw may affect Cullen and any missed doubles from the Yorkshire man will likely be punished by the Machine who has had a solid Premier League.

The event will be hosted at the Utility Arena in Newcastle but can also be watched at home on Sky Sports on Thursday 26th May.
