West Brom fans react on Twitter to Victor Anichebe's performance v Palace

West Brom fans were both delighted and surprised at the striker's display.

West Brom fans were full of praise for Victor Anichebe for his performance against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.

The Baggies forward didn't manage to score against the Eagles and received criticism from some quarters for simply backing into Crystal Palace defenders continuously when holding up the ball - and going down a tad too easily.

But plenty of West Brom supporters were, at the same time, delighted with the striker's display. The 26-year-old was some people's choice for man of the match and his energy and presence was much appreciated.

Even more impressive for some fans, however, was the fact Anichebe lasted 90 minutes in the first place for West Brom!

The target man has suffered from injury trouble aplenty in the past and a full match under his belt was a joy for many of those watching the Baggies in the Premier League. A lot of the Crystal Palace faithful also commented on what a handful he was, while Anichebe's hold-up play was seen as better than Brown Ideye's of late.

Here, then, is what West Brom supporters made of the 26-year-old's performance against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Twitter...
