Premier league Round Up- Everton : 13th Jan 2011.       

Everton player Leon Osman deems that the absence of Tim Cahill may not be that big a handicap and believed that Everton is not a one man club.  Cahill is currently the club’s top scorer and has been scoring against Liverpool in recent history. The player would miss this match owing to his International duty with Australia in the Asian Cup.

"Possibly we'll miss Tim Cahill but he has been away for two games now and we've won them both so we're not in any way sitting and being upset about him not being here," he said. "We're aiming to do the double in the derby matches this season. We've got to concentrate on ourselves and make sure our form is right, and we turn up on the day ready to take three points," stated the player

Everton have however managed back to back wins without Cahil and Osman believes that his side can make it three in a row. Liverpool, on the other hand, would be looking to bounce back from their recent embarrassing defeat to Blackpool and manager Kenny Dalglish would need to get the tactics right this time. Captain Steven Gerrard would still be unavailable for the fixture, as he still has to serve a three match ban for his untimely lunge on Michael Carrick in the FA Cup match. 

Not having Gerrard would be good news would for Everton, as the skipper has been the most consistent performer for the side. Whether it was under Rafael Benitez or Roy Hodgson, Gerrard has been a loyal servant to Liverpool and has played his part, even if the team was underperforming. So without him, Liverpool are weak and Everton would need to capitalize on that and would want to squeeze an early goal. Everton have managed to take points of the other English Giants, including leader Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City. They may not be on top of their form but are a dangerous side when they players start to click as the season matures.
