Cahill: Putting team first
Tim Cahill is looking forward to the challenge of getting into the Everton side.
After returning from suspension for the game with Bolton, the Australian star had to make do with a place on the bench.
Belgian ace Marouane Fellaini has scored three goals already from midfield and some think he could keep Cahill out of the side.
However, Cahill is only thinking about Everton and not himself, telling Sky Sports News: "What our team needs is players scoring from all sorts of positions.
"And as a team player it doesn't matter who is scoring as long as we are winning."
And Cahill refutes that he is set to fight it out with Fellaini for a starting role.
"If you are very selfish you can look at it that way but if you are a team player you have to be happy with how things are going."
The Australian admits that he is still building up to full fitness after being ruled out for almost six months with a foot injury.
"It is always there, I am going to get niggles as I am learning how to change my running with orthodics and all these other weird things and it is just all part of being a footballer," he said.
