Anichebe seeking return to full fitness
Striker Anichebe made his first Premier League start since August last Sunday after recovering from hernia surgery, which he underwent over a month ago.
Despite Anichebe's presence, West Brom still slumped to a 2-0 home loss to Newcastle United at The Hawthorns, but the former Everton man was pleased to get a full 90 minutes under his belt.
"I have been in and out through injury for a little bit, so it was good to play," Anichebe said.
"Over the international break, I need to go away, come back and be as fit as possible.
"I don't feel as sharp and fit as I was at the start of the season but that will come.
"I will go away and I will do parts to try to get myself ready but I'll also be with the team.
"I have the medical team here, they have helped me a lot and I have guys in America I have worked with a lot.
"Between the two we have come up with a fitness regime which will help me to get to where I should be. Hopefully I can come back as fit as possible.
"For me it's very difficult. I had niggling injuries here and there and I have just come back from hernia surgery and I had some complications and that's not an excuse or anything, it's just normal.
"I feel a lot better and hopefully given the break we've got I can go away and get myself right and come back and help the team."
