After reaching the PDC World Championship final and winning the Bahrain Masters, Littler was back at the oche on Friday to face Van Duijvenbode.

And he easily swatted aside the Dutchman to quieten the crowd at De Maaspoort in Den Bosch in a 6-2 drubbing.

To wrap up his victory, Littler completed a 150 checkout to take the win in style.

It keeps alive his ambition to win back-to-back Masters tournaments ahead of his Premier League debut this year.

And fans could not help but talk up the teenager, who just keeps getting better and better.

One fan wrote: “Luke Littler is inevitable. Don’t think even MVG will phase him at this rate.”

Another wrote: “All the way, nuke.”

And a third said: “Didn’t even get out of second gear, and could tell by his body language he wasn’t even trying to.”

Littler looked seriously impressive once again after hitting four 180s before his stupendous 150 checkout to win it.

But with an average of 90.85, there is plenty to come from the ‘Nuke’, who is now in the quarter-finals.

And he faces a potential clash against Luke Humphries in what would be a repeat of the World Championship final.
