The top two players in the world are in the same quarter of the draw after Trump only managed to finish third in his group at the round-robin stage.

Defending champion Selby has won every match he has played in the event so far though although he had his biggest test to date in the last 32 when he beat former 15-reds world champion Ken Doherty 6-5.

He played another former world champion in the last 16 – Graeme Dott – but this time enjoyed a more straightforward 6-3 success.

Trump edged out Wuxi Classic finalist Stuart Bingham 6-4 in his last 32 match before defeating Iranian player Hossein Vafaei Ayouri next 6-1.

Wuxi Classic winner Ricky Walden continued his strong form as victories over Jimmy White and Joe Perry secured him his place in the last eight.
