Anichebe denies Chelsea victory

Chelsea drew West Brom 1-1
Nigerian striker, Victor Anichebe, was the hero for his English Premier League side, West Bromwich Albion, on Tuesday night as he scored an 87th minute equaliser to deny Chelsea victory.

Anichebe’s glancing header ensured the game ended 1-1 after Chelsea had shot into the lead in the last minute of the first half through Branislav Ivanovic.

Tuesday’s goal futher confirms Anichebe’s return to top form even though the former Everton striker is not showing keen interest for a return to the national team.

The disappointing draw nonetheless, Chelsea are still on top with 57 points but the Blues may be vacating the coveted number one position if close rivals Arsenal and Manchester City secure victories in their respective games against Manchester United and Sunderlandon Wednesday night.

In other Tuesday games, Sone Aluko’s Hull City were defeated 1-0 at home by Southampton. Also West Ham continued their surge up the table as they secured a 2-0 win over Joseph Yobo’s Norwich City. The other game of the night between Cardiff City and Aston Villa ended goalless.
