5. Anderson Defeats MvG On Home Soil

4. Record-Breaking Debut In Berlin

The Premier League enjoyed a record-breaking debut in Germany as 12,000 fans flocked to Berlin's Mercedes-Benz Arena for a historic night of darts.

The sport's increasing popularity in Germany led to night four being held in Berlin, where Michael Smith moved clear at the top of the table after beating Simon Whitlock 7-3.

3. Emotional Gurney's Winning Belfast Homecoming

Daryl Gurney ensured survival with an emotional homecoming win over Rob Cross at The SSE Arena in Belfast as the Northern Irishman made his first big-stage appearance in his homeland.

"It was unbelievable - I knew that atmosphere would be good but the support was amazing. It's the best feeling I've ever had, even better than winning the World Grand Prix last year," said Gurney.

2. Premier League Goes Double-Dutch

Dutch darts fans received a huge boost with an additional Premier League night held at Rotterdam Ahoy on, following the cancellation of night five in Exeter due to heavy snow across the UK and Storm Emma.

Raymond van Barneveld enjoyed took in a heroes' reception on both nights and made it a dream homecoming with wins over Michael van Gerwen and Simon Whitlock in front of two 9,000-strong crowds.

1. Sublime MvG Storms To The Title
