LIVERPOOL – Tim Cahill was left seeing red in more ways than one in the latest round of FA Premiership action after his Everton side were beaten 2-0 by arch-rivals Liverpool at the weekend. The part-Samoan completed a miraculous comeback from injury last week when he netted a late winner for Everton in its hard-fought 3-2 victory over newly promoted Stoke City but it was a completely different story for the 28-year-old Australian international midfielder this week.
Cahill – a former Oceania Football Confederation Player of the Year – was sent off after 80 minutes although the result had already been determined by the hour mark thanks to two goals from Liverpool striker Fernando Torres. Cahill had Everton’s best chance of the match after 13 minutes from a set-peice delivered by former Rangers midfielder Mikael Arteta but the Australian squandered it when it looked easier to score.
