MICHAEL VAN GERWEN produced a dominant display to defeat Dave Chisnall in Cardiff on Thursday.

The world number one and defending Betway Premier League Champion remains top of the table after a 7-1 success on week nine. 

The Dutchman had lost his first game of the season a week ago against Van Barneveld, but bounced back with the aid of a 104 average.

“I had to play well tonight and I’m happy that I did,” said Van Gerwen.

“The pressure was on me because I want to be back on top of the table where I belong and where I’ve worked hard for.

“When you lose a game, like last week, you’re upset but tonight I enjoyed it again. I’m a happy man and I’m already looking forward to next week.”
