"I feel awesome but I did not play my A game".

"I was struggling a bit at the start of the game, he put me under pressure and I missed a few doubles, but I got back in the game and this feels phenomenal".

Anderson stepped up a gear, reeling off the next three legs to leave him one set away from yet another final and a deflated Wright was unable to stop the 46-year-old defending champion from wrapping up victory in the ninth.

The world number one averaged 107.79 to claim the £350,000 in prize money and the Sid Waddell Trophy following one of the most incredible performances seen at the famous venue, where Anderson had won 17 matches in a row since losing to the same opponent.

MVG subsequently lost momentum with Anderson taking advantage bt he got back on track to take the win.

The two hottest properties in world darts face off for the right to be crowned 2017 PDC World Champion on Monday night, and the final is also available to watch live on desktop or mobile devices.

Anderson finds himself on the cusp of an unprecedented "threepeat" at Ally Pally as he aims to become the first player since Phil Taylor to claim three consecutive world titles.

Van Gerwen then won the next set 3-0 and suddenly the Dutchman had the edge.

But Van Gerwen won 12 of the next 13 legs, moving 5-2 up with a 125 finish.

Van Gerwan says the World Championship victory was the most important one of the year. The night ended with that total at 708, with Anderson hitting 22 in the game and Van Gerwen 20.

And during the middle of his press conference, Van Gerwen took a phone call from Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte to offer his congratulations.
