Moyes welcomes Anichebe return

Published Add your comment

David Moyes hailed the contribution of Everton match-winner Victor Anichebe, who put a four-month injury nightmare behind him to score the only goal in the win over West Brom at the Hawthorns.

Anichebe suffered a groin injury when on international duty with Nigeria in September and then an ankle setback with the Toffees. But he marked his return by coming off the substitutes' bench to net an 87th-minute decider against Roy Hodgson's side.

Everton manager Moyes said: "It was a serious injury. Victor has had no games. Then he had an ankle injury when he came back in training. He is someone we have missed because we can play him in several roles and he is someone who has got a lot of potential if we get the opportunity to unwrap it."
