Cahill wants Toffees grit

The Toffees go into Saturday’s early evening kick-off having been

beaten 2-0 by both Manchester City and Merseyside derby rivals

Liverpool. David Moyes’ side have lost only once in their last five

visits to Stamford Bridge in all competitions and Cahill feels

Everton will need to put in a gritty display there to turn their

league form around. “When we are up against it we seem to shine a

bit and try and fight our way out of a corner – the main thing for

us it to keep the unity and keep the strength on the pitch,” the

Toffees’ Australia international told “We need

to have the determination and grit to go to a place like Chelsea

and get the right result. “We know they’ve been banging in the

goals left, right and centre but we need to focus on our strengths.

“Past performances count for nothing and it’s about how we apply

ourselves in this game. “It’s exciting – Chelsea are one of the

biggest teams in the country if not the world and for us it’s a

great challenge to go there and put in a great performance.”
