West Brom boss Mel explains Anichebe absence for Fulham draw

West Bromwich Albion boss Pepe Mel says he didn't drop Victor Anichebe for their draw with Fulham.

Mel insists Anichebe has been carrying a knock during the week.

Mel said: "The problem with Anichebe is during the last three days in Spain he couldn't work because he was injured - and also the first day back in England.

"And it is only for this reason I preferred Thievy or Berahino."
