WATCH: MVG FEELING VERY CONFIDENT
Here's Van Gerwen's interview after he beat Stephen Bunting - it's worth a watch! Is he confident or just plain cocky?
WHITE *2-3 CROSS
Cross sets up 32 but misses three at doubles. With White way back he gets there to win the opening session. Every leg has gone with throw.
WHITE 2-2* CROSS
Double 10 allows white to draw level. There seems to be a lot of respect between the two men on the oche.

MVG: I'M ALLOWED TO MISS DOUBLES
He missed 22 of them but Van Gerwen said his opponent Stephen Bunting was "lacking confidence" and says he is playing at "80%".
Will Simon Whitlock be a challenge? "No" is his answer.
MIGHTY DISPLAY FROM MVG
VAN GERWEN 10-4 BUNTING
Bunting lands a maximum to put him on the verge of another leg, but Van Gerwen shuts up shop with a magnificent 160 out for victory.
VAN GERWEN 9-4* BUNTING
A score of 138 sets up 38 for Van Gerwen, but he misses three darts at double 19 for the match. Bunting wins his third leg out of the last four.
VAN GERWEN *9-3 BUNTING
Sadly, he hasn't followed it through and Van Gerwen moves one leg away from victory by sealing 8 with double 4 much to his relief.
VAN GERWEN 8-3* BUNTING
Van Gerwen narrowly misses the big 170 but then misses EIGHT at the double. Bunting gets double 5 and may feel as though he's in with a shout should he hold his throw in the next leg.
ROOM WITH A VIEW
VAN GERWEN *8-2 BUNTING
Blackpool will be hanging out the Bunting tonight ... do pardon the pun! But maybe not that soon as the Merseysider fires in a classy 102 to stay alive.
VAN GERWEN 8-1* BUNTING
The power of the Dutchman has taken over as he finishes off 32 by nailing double 8.
VAN GERWEN *7-1 BUNTING
Bunting avoids the whitewash thanks to 2 and double 2. How about that then!
VAN GERWEN 7-0* BUNTING
Mighty Mike sweeps up 82 with two 25's and double 16. Flashy finishing!
VAN GERWEN *6-0 BUNTING
The reigning and defending World Matchplay champion is on course for a last 16 date with Simon Whitlock. Bunting fires in a maximum and then Van Gerwen responds with a 180 of his own.
Bunting misses two more at doubles and that allows Van Gerwen to mop up another leg and another break.

VAN GERWEN 5-0* BUNTING
The world No 1 is averaging 107 and is a man in a hurry. He could be on for a whitewash and walks off stage signing autographs and smiling just moments after nailing double 4 with his last dart in hand to move 5-0 up.
VAN GERWEN *4-0 BUNTING
Bunting misses double top, but Van Gerwen doesn't. This could become a nightmare for the man from Liverpool.
VAN GERWEN 3-0* BUNTING
Double 18 helps the Dutch ace move further ahead. Bunting is cracking on the oche.
VAN GERWEN *2-0 BUNTING
Merseysider Bunting is a former Lakeside champion who is lacking confidence in the PDC and he misses three at double 8. Ouch! That allows MVG in for a hold of throw with a 74 checkout.
VAN GERWEN 1-0* BUNTING
The show-stopper is up and running with a maximum in the opening leg against the arrows and it's not long before the Dutchman cleans the leg up with his last dart in hand for the break.
