Anichebe Set For Rare West Brom Start Vs Sunderland

By Adeboye Amosu:

Nigeria forward, Victor Anichebe, is in line to make his first Premier League  start of  the season for West Bromwich Albion  against Sunderland at the Hawthorns on Saturday, Completesportsnigeria.com can report.


The hitman has struggled to pin down a regular spot with the Baggies since the start of the campaign with Saido Berahino, Salomon  Rondon and Rickie Lambert ahead of him in the pecking order.

But injury to Berahino, who has a niggling back problem that has hampered his training programme during the international break, and concerns over the fitness of Rondon, who did not arrive back to the UK until late this week after featuring in two matches in South America with Venezuela, could see Albion boss Tony Pulis hand Anichebe a starting place.


The former Everton striker has started only one game for West Brom this season, against Norwich City in the Capital One Cup where he was deployed in an unfamiliar holding midfield role.


Albion will be  looking to record their first home victory of the league campaign.
