Gerwyn Price vs Gary Anderson LIVE updates
Match to start at 7.30pm (best of 13)
Gerwyn Price and Gary Anderson go head-to-head in the World Darts Championship final at Alexandra Palace – but there will be no fans in attendance because of the current coronavirus restrictions.
The pair have a fierce past which started during their first televised meeting at the 2017 World Series of Darts Finals.
The Flying Scotsman won the game 10-8 and complained about Price’s celebrations to hitting 180s.
“The game’s changing,” he told ITV. “I class myself as old school. A lot of players, the old boys, Steve Beaton, we just go up there and play darts.
“We don’t jump about. We hit 180s. We’re supposed to hit 180s, it’s nothing to scream about. That’s what we do, that’s our job. I’ll stick to my old school.”
Price has since played up to pantomime villain role, especially when supporters are in attendance.
And his relationship with Anderson exploded during the 2018 Grand Slam of Darts final when the Scot pushed his Welsh rival.
“I knew if I put him under pressure he would crack, and he did,” Price told Sky Sports. “I’m throwing my darts. He needs to wait for his turn, hold back.
“He doesn’t like it with a little bit up him, so unlucky. He can’t handle playing me. He just moans every time that I’m doing this, doing that. Concentrate on your own game. I won, happy days.”
