Sunderland manager David Moyes has described Victor Anichebe as “a young Drogba” after his brace gave his team their second straight win in the Premier League this season.

Anichebe fired a second-half double for Sunderland to beat fellow strugglers Hull City 3-0 on Saturday.

It was a result that took ‘The Black Cats’ off the basement of the league for the first time this season.

Moyes will compare Anichebe to Premier League legend Didier Drogba.

“He was like a young Drogba at times, he was that good,” hailed Moyes, who snapped up the Nigeria striker on a free in the summer after he was released by West Bromwich Albion.

Sunderland next face a daunting trip to league leaders Liverpool.

It will be something of a homecoming for both Moyes and Anichebe as they were both first at Liverpool city rivals Everton.
