Luke Littler has new superstition that he'll do 'every week' after Premier League win

Luke Littler has new superstition that he'll do 'every week' after Premier League win

Littler triumphed 6-4 against Nathan Aspinall in the week nine final in Belfast.

Luke Littler has revealed he took a different approach to week nine of Premier League darts before winning the night - and says he will have to do it every week from now on.

Littler defeated Nathan Aspinall 6-4 in the final in Belfast, producing a memorable moment when he hit 25, bull and 25 to take out a 125 checkout against the throw to level at 3-3.

The 17-year-old had earlier averaged 102 in defeating Luke Humphries, but needed to prevail in a last-leg decider to get over the line in the quarter-final.

Then, in the semi-final, Littler produced another confident display to beat Michael van Gerwen 6-2.

The night win means he now stands alone in second place in the Premier League table, four points behind leader Humphries with seven weeks to go before the Grand Final.

He becomes the fifth player to win a night this season, with Michael Smith and Rob Cross also having one win to their name. Humphries and Van Gerwen, who is in third, have both won three nights.

And Littler revealed a subtle change to his regime before the event got underway - that he agrees he will keep doing for the remainder of the tournament.

He told Sky Sports after beating Aspinall: "I had a good practice game with Rob Cross before we came out tonight.

"We both had over 100 averages. I said to Rob, 'Cheers for the game!' It got me up for it.

"I practiced well, and I'm glad I brought it on here."

When asked by presenter Emma Paton about whether he'd have to repeat the regime every week, he replied: "Yeah!"

He continued: "I'm just glad to win it, and obviously against a good friend in Nathan.

"That's all I've got to do [enjoy my darts] - if you're not enjoying it, you won't perform. If you're not enjoying it, you're not going to play well.

"I can't wait for next week in Manchester. I know I've got Michael van Gerwen next week in the first round, it's close to my home and I can't wait."
