Week 5 comes from Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle. First up we see James Wade take on Jelle Klaasen, since that thrashing to Mervyn King three weeks ago Wade has been in excellent form with convincing wins over Raymond van Barneveld and Phil Taylor. Klaasen has found the Premier League tough and only has one point from his four games so far, if Wade repeats the last two weeks form it’s hard to see him adding to it.
Can Mervyn King keep his 100% record going against Phil Taylor? King is three points clear at the top with an amazing +24 legs difference and probably in the form of his career. He’s up against Phil Taylor now though and this will show if he really is the real deal. Taylor bounced back from last weeks defeat by winning two tournaments in Germany at the weekend and i would expect him to end King’s run as well this week.
Barney finally got his first win of the campaign last week with a tight 8-6 victory over Terry Jenkins. At last the Dutchman showed us what he’s capable of with an average of 106. Wayne Mardle got his second 8-1 thrashing in four matches last week, in between that he has won one 8-6 and drew one 7-7, it’s hard to take form into consideration with Mardle as it is so up and down. After returning to form last week you would have to think that Barney will be to strong for him though.
It’s hard to believe that Terry Jenkins hasn’t managed a win yet in this seasons Premier League. After a well earned draw with Taylor and a tight defeat to Barney it seems like Jenkins is in some resonable form but yet he is still to register a win. John Part will be no easy task either, with only one defeat to his name this season – and that was to in form Mervyn King – Part seems well up for the Premier League this season and is proving a difficult opponent to beat. Expect this to be a tight game that could go either way.
