Manager Tony Pulis said Thursday that Anichebe (groin) is still not fully fit and could miss this weekend's match versus Stoke.

Anichebe is not a lock to miss this weekend's match, but his two-week absence along with the injury confirmation by his manager do not bode well for his status. Anichebe only has one goal in 14 appearances this season so he shouldn't be near the top of your fantasy radar, fit or not.

Anichebe (groin) will not play Tuesday against Aston Villa, the Birmingham Mail reports.

West Brom are facing a full-on injury crisis up front, as Brown Ideye (knee) and Saido Berahino (foot) both suffered injuries Saturday against Manchester United and will have late fitness tests before Tuesday's match.

Anichebe grabbed an assist in Saturday's 1-0 win against Hull City.

Anichebe touched an indirect free kick to Saido Berahino who placed it home in the 78th minute. The Nigerian replaced his compatriot Brown Ideye in the 73rd minute and didn't take long to impress new boss Tony Pulis.

Anichebe scored a 51st minute header in Saturday's 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace.

Anichebe replaced Stephane Sessegnon at half time and headed home Chris Brunt's corner early in the second half. The Nigerian striker then won the penalty that Saido Berahino equalised from at the death. Anichebe changed the game after coming on and this was his first goal of the campaign. Expect him to push for a start next time out against Leicester City.

Anichebe (groin) has returned to training and could make Monday's game against Manchester United, manager Alan Irvine told the official club website.

Anichebe (groin) trained in the USA over the international break and manager Alan Irvine still sounds cautious over a return on Monday. "Victor Anichebe has been in the States and trained well. Hopefully he will be ok but we will see how he is," Irvine said. Anichebe has been hampered by injury problems so far this season and increased competition at centre forward gives him a low fantasy price tag.

Anichebe (groin) won't play against Liverpool on Saturday, manager Alan Irvine told the Birmingham Mail.

Anichebe missed last week's game against Burnley with the injury and is being given the international break to recuperate with a return for the Manchester United game on Oct. 20 looking likely.

Anichebe was a 91st minute substitute in Sunday's 1-0 win at Tottenham.

Anichebe missed two games with a hernia injury and his return gives manager Alan Irvine a plethora of options at the main striker position. The Nigerian forward has one assist so far this campaign and faces a battle from his compatriot Brown Ideye for the starting berth. Fantasy owners can expect a maximum of six goals in addition to a few assists and he represents a low level option for managers.

Anichebe (hernia) is unlikely to make Saturday’s game against Everton after missing training on Thursday. “I’m still not ruling him out, he’s been training with the medical people,” manager Alan Irvine told the official club website.

Anichebe (hernia) dropped to the bench for the defeat at Swansea and has been suffering with the hernia problem throughout the international break. The Nigerian striker has yet to register a goal so far this campaign and his lack of goals or assists makes the forward worth next-to-nothing for fantasy managers.
