West Brom manager Tony Pulis stunned everybody with his team selection last night by picking Victor Anichebe in central midfield.
The Nigerian has played his entire career as a striker, spending seven seasons at Everton.
He was a surprise pick in a deeper role than usual last night against Norwich City, a game the Baggies lost 3-0 - which tells it's own story that the experiment was not a success.
27-year-old Anichebe is low in the pecking order up front at The Hawthorns, behind Salomon Rondon, Saido Berahino, and Rickie Lambert.
Only this week it was reported by The Bolton News that Anichebe had rejected a move to Championship side Bolton - but even he may not have known that if he was to fight for his place, he would have to do so out of position.
The striker has scored nine goals in two seasons for the Baggies since signing in 2013.
Anichebe was not the only player picked in an unfamiliar role last night, with new signing James Chester selected at right-back.
Yes, we are all surprised as you Victor.
Here is a look at how supporters reacted on Twitter to Tony Pulis' decision, with a mixture of disbelief and frustration...

Anichebe in midfield is nearly as funny as when Olsson was put up front #wba— OwenBurborough (@OwenBurborough1) September 23, 2015
