Everton manager David Moyes has praised Tim Cahill, as the attacking midfielder looks to add to his five previous goals against Liverpool in the Merseyside derby on Saturday.
The Australia international was a doubt for the clash, as he was suffering from a shin injury, but to Toffees fans relief he has been declared fit to play against the Anfield club.
Ahead of the clash, Moyes has labelled Cahill as one of the best signings he has ever made.
“From day one, Tim has been nothing but magnificent. The way he goes about the job, the way he puts himself over, he’s been magnificent,” the Scottish coach stated in a press conference.
“He is going to be one of a kind in our time, and I just hope he has something to show for it, a trophy, when his time comes to an end.
“He is massive because of his attitude and energy. He beats the drum and keeps everybody at it. And he has a great record of scoring when it matters, important goals and that won’t change.
“He has helped me, because part of any new manager who comes into a job is to make good signings to help your own position and to help the team get better. Tim was such a great early signing for me,” he concluded.
Cahill’s inclusion will be a massive boost to Everton, as he has become a lynchpin in the Goodison Park team and will be sure to be a handful for Liverpool on Saturday.
