Unibet Premier League – Liverpool Preview

Peter Wright and Mensur Suljovic will battle to remain in the Unibet Premier League on Judgement Night at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Thursday.

With Gerwyn Price having already been eliminated from the event ahead of Judgement Night, either Wright or Suljovic will join the Welshman in dropping out of the event, as the first phase of the season concludes.

Wright sits on five points following his opening eight matches, having picked up a potentially crucial draw with Simon Whitlock in Belfast last week after coming from 6-3 down to take a point.

The 2017 Premier League runner-up had been dragged into the elimination battle with three successive 7-1 losses, but after reaching two European Tour finals over the past fortnight is in confident mood as he takes on Daryl Gurney.

Suljovic, meanwhile, has picked up just four points so far this season, with defeats in his last three matches having seen the Austrian debutant drop to second bottom in the table.

The Champions League of Darts winner takes on world number one Michael van Gerwen in Liverpool.

Van Gerwen has now won six successive games and sits two points clear of Michael Smith at the top of the table as he returns to the Echo Arena to take on Suljovic.

St Helens star Smith is relishing his chance to appear in Liverpool on Thursday night, as he faces 2014 champion Raymond van Barneveld in his “home” event.

World Champion Rob Cross comes up against Gary Anderson, having never previously defeated the Scottish ace in five meetings since joining the PDC circuit in 2017.

The night’s other game sees Australian star Simon Whitlock take on Price in the Welshman’s final game before he exits the tournament.
