Michael van Gerwen has warned Luke Littler that he has still to “chase” him after seeing off the Nuke in the his latest Premier League Final victory.

The pair went head-to-head once again on in Birmingham with the Dutchman secured a 6-3 success in the final to claim his fourth overall win of the campaign. Van Gerwen’s success denied Littler his chance to make it a hat-trick of wins. The 17-year-old however still sits top of the Premier League table with 26 points.

And while Van Gerwen trails the teenager by four points he had a loaded warning for the teenager in his post-match press conference. Van Gerwen said: “I don’t have to chase anyone. He [Littler] has to chase me still. I’m about 150 tournaments in front of him so good luck to him.” He was then quizzed on Littler featuring in Forbes magazine before continuing: “He didn’t win anything, that’s the worst thing.

“When people don’t win anything, they get in Forbes. What he did and what he created for the sport of darts is phenomenal but with all the respect, he played c*** tonight and I bet him in a c*** game, that’s the reality of the moment.”

Van Gerwen has had highs and lows against Littler – but remains unmoved over who is the better player. He added: “That’s going to happen in the Premier League, we’re going to play each other so often. You’re going to win two times and then you’re going to lose two times. That’s how it is.

“Last few times he’s played me, he’s played poorly. I could have I think won a few more games against him but when you don’t, you can only blame yourself. You need to make sure you do perform at the right moment and I think I did tonight even if I didn’t play my big game, I still did okay.”
