WHAT HAPPENED?

The teenage Dart sensation, who is known to be a Manchester United fan, predicted Liverpool to lift the Premier League title this season. He also weighed in on the Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo GOAT debate as he picked the Portuguese as his favourite.

WHAT LUKE LITTLER SAID

BBC threw a series of quickfire questions at the British Darts player which included predicting the current season’s Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup winners. He named Liverpool, Real Madrid and United, respectively as the three Champion clubs.

Littler was also asked if England would win the upcoming Euro 2025, to which he replied, “No.”

THE BIGGER PICTURE

The 17-year-old Darts player who – despite only making his senior tournament debut in 2023-24 – has reached the final of the PDC World Championship in 2024. He has produced some of the best performances ever seen in the competition, including the phenomenal 6-2 win over Cross in the semis that saw him achieve 16 180s, averaging a score of 106.05. However, in the final, he lost to compatriot Luke Humphries.

WHAT NEXT?

While the Darts star predicted the Reds to lift the league title this season, they currently trail leaders Manchester City by two points after their loss to Crystal Palace at Anfield last weekend. They will be next seen in action on Thursday as they face Atalanta in the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final fixture.
