Nigeria’s Victor Anichebe tasted victory against United.
West Bromwich Albion secured their first ever Premier League victory over Manchester United in a stunning fashion as the Baggies secured a 2-1 win over the reigning league champions at the Old Trafford.
The victory recorded by Nigeria’s Victor Anichebe and his West Brom teammates is the first of any kind for West Brom in over 35 years of endless tries at the Old Trafford; and it finally ended the jinx for Anichebe who has never tasted victory over the Red Devils even while at Everton.
Morgan Amalfitano and Saido Berahino were the heroes for West Brom with their wonderful strikes in the 54th and 67th minutes.
Wayne Rooney’s goal off a free kick in the 57th minute had little or no effect as United were confined to their second successive league defeat after last weekend’s drubbing by City rivals, Manchester City.
For manager David Moyes, the heat is sure to get more intense as this has become United’s poorest start to the season.
In other games, Manchester City also ended their game in a defeat as Aston Villa secured a 3-2 win over the big spenders.
At the Craven Cottage, Super Eagles striker, Osaze Odemwingie, ended on the winning side as Cardiff City scored a late winner to end their tie against Fulham 2-1. Another Nigerian striker, Sone Aluko, got maximum points with his team as Hull City piped visiting West Ham United by a lone goal.
John Obi Mikel and his Chelsea teammates settled for a 1-1 draw in the early kick off at the White Hart Lane against Tottenham.
Southampton also defeated Crystal Palace, 2-0, in another Premier League game.
