Toffees can win without Tim - Osman

12 January 2011 02:00
Everton midfielder Leon Osman believes Tim Cahill's absence for Sunday's Merseyside derby will not be such a handicap. Cahill has been a regular goalscorer against their near-neighbours in recent matches but is currently on Asian Cup duty with Australia. However, Osman insists back-to-back wins shows they can cope without their goalscoring midfielder. "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 told the Liverpool Echo. "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."
