David Moyes explains why Victor Anichebe is such a threat in Europe.


David Moyes has explained why Victor Anichebe is such a danger in Europe.

Anichebe came off the bench and scored for the Blues against Brann last week, the fourth time he has accomplished the feat this season.

And Moyes explained just how much thought goes into late substitutions.

He told "I think part of it is the unknown quantity and also I think his style can be suited. I am not so sure if James Vaughan’s style would be quite so suited but my take on it is Victor has got a style which suited for European games.

"He has got strength and he is beginning to feel really good and confident about the games. So that helps us when we want to bring him on later in games or in some cases start them."

Moyes revealed that James Vaughan's attritional style of forward play may put him in difficulties with continental referees.

"Victor has got strength and James Vaughan has a robustness which referees in Europe may not allow whereas in the Premier League is it allowed," said the boss. "Victor has got strength and he can hold the ball up well, he can gain us possession and keep it for us."

Another striker pleasing the Blues chief is Andrew Johnson, who Moyes admits is not having the rub of the green at the moment.

“Andrew has been playing well recently, all he has been missing is to get his goals ticking over again, but that will come no doubt,” said the boss.

“He is working really hard for the team, working the opposition hard, and I have been fairly pleased with Andy Johnson’s form.

“He will be keen to get himself a couple of goals and when he does that will help him. But he made the first goal in Norway with his cross and that is part of his job. That’s a big part of the reason we bought him.”
