Nigerian And Sunderland Striker Victor Anichebe Out Injured For Up To 10 Weeks With Knee Injury (Read)

Sunderland striker Victor Anichebe has been ruled out for up to 10 weeks with a knee injury.

The 28-year-old sustained the injury in his side’s 2-0 defeat to West Brom at the Hawthorns on Saturday. He picked up the injury as his shot was blocked shortly after coming on as a substitute.

Anichebe signed a one-year deal with Sunderland in September 2016 and has scored three goals in 11 Premier League appearances.

He was making his comeback from a hamstring injury that had kept him out since New Year’s Eve at the weekend but now faces a further spell on the sidelines.

Anichebe joins a number of first-team players who are missing for Sunderland due to injury, while others are away at the Africa Cup of Nations.
