One of the most dramatic seasons in Premier League Darts history culminates at The O2 on Thursday, and we've crunched the numbers to see how the final four compare.

After 16 nights of pulsating competition across the UK, Ireland, Germany and the Netherlands, just four men remain in the running to secure the £250,000 title.

This year's Unibet Premier League has featured 18 different players, including nine 'Contenders' - who each stepped in for one night to replace the injured Gary Anderson.

Michael van Gerwen finished the regular campaign top of the table for the seventh consecutive season, while the retiring Raymond van Barneveld bowed out at the halfway stage on home soil in Rotterdam.

Van Gerwen and James Wade are the only two former winners appearing in this year's play-offs, with Daryl Gurney heading to The O2 for the first time and Rob Cross returning for his second bite at the cherry.

Van Gerwen has never lost in a Premier League Semi-Final and a fourth straight crown here would equal Phil Taylor's run between 2005 and 2008.

The Dutchman's average of 112.37 in last year's final broke the record for a three-dart average in a Premier League final, and he also holds the overall record average of 123.40 set in 2016.
