What will Everton’s push for fourth look like without Cahill?

The Daily Mail reckons that Everton’s antipodean genius could be out – not just for the Merseyside derby game – but for the rest of the season, with a recurrence of the metatarsal injury that knocked him for six earlier in the season. If this is true this not only represents a firm kick in the balls for Everton’s 4th place challenge but also hints at a serious problem with Tim Cahill’s foot – when he next plays for Everton I want to see him wearing an above ankle height, wooden studded brick of a boot.
So what of Everton’s challenge for fourth and the Merseyside derby next week – Tim Cahill could have exploited the enforced absence of Liverpool’s Mascherano, but now he’ll have to settle for twiddling his thumbs in the stands.
