Former two-time World Champion Gary Anderson is more determined than ever to stop world No 1 Michael van Gerwen from winning everything in darts.
Anderson says Van Gerwen "is like a little steam train" and will try to win every competition he plays this year, so expects himself and the rest of the players to stop him.
The brilliant Dutchman won a remarkable 25 tournament titles in 2016 to add to his career milestones, which includes nine-dart finishes and record-breaking three-dart averages.
But after claiming his second World Championship crown at Alexandra Palace, the 27-year-old only seems to be getting better.
'The Flying Scotsman' feels the standard is only going to improve and has called on his fellow professionals to stop 'Mighty Mike' from dominating the sport.
"Everything is going up. The 180s and averages are going higher and higher every tournament," said the Borders thrower. "I just wish I did it a lot longer a lot sooner than what I did. The PDC has been fantastic.
"I will try to win as many majors as I can and try spoiling Michael's year, but I think he will be out to win everything this year, so it's up to us to stop him."
