Phil Taylor: I want to wipe the floor with Michael van Gerwen in Blackpool
The Power and MVG meet in the last eight at the BetVictor World Matchplay in a repeat of last year’s final.
MVG won that 18-10 but in 2014, The Power lifted the title by beating him 18-9
Taylor said: “I would like to spank him.
“I would like to wipe the floor with him – I find him cocky but that’s the way I was!”
It could prove an emotional evening for Taylor, 56, as he meets the world No.1 knowing defeat will spell the end of an era at his favourite tournament.
Not that Taylor, in his retirement year, should be written off for one moment.
