Van Gerwen will be looking to bounce back after his dramatic sudden-death defeat to Rob Cross in the World Championship semi-finals.
This ended his incredible unbeaten run which dated back to October, but he’ll still take some stopping this year, and is the bookies favorite at 7/4 to win the league.

Peter Wright will be looking for redemption after last year’s Premier League heartbreak.

The man they call ‘Snakebite’ suffered anguish in last years final when he failed to maximize six match darts against Van Gerwen. 2017 was Peter Wrights best year winning 11 titles, including his maiden TV major at the UK Open.

Anderson’s best appearance in a ranking major in 2017 saw him reach the Grand Slam semi-finals, but he also won three World Series titles throughout the year.
