After watching the EPL match between West Brom and Chelsea on the NBC Sports Channel, reflection of what transpired is necessary. Since Chelsea was a superior team and West Brom is in relegation, the match was considered a victory for the Blues.

On the contrary, Victor Anichibe substituted for Morgan Amalfitano and West Brom was not the same. At 87 minutes, Anichibe scored a header [assisted by Saido Berahino] into the center box for the Baggies.

The result stunned Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech and the rest of the Blue Nation [including manager Jose Mourinho] who expected a victory. While the celebration was short lived [because Anichibe was cautioned for excessive celebration], the match proved that nothing is absolute in any sport.

It is for this reason that The Premier League Insider selected Anichibe to be the Most Valued Player of the tournament. It remains to be seen whether West Brom can inspire itself by winning all or the majority of its matches to avoid relegation.
