Cahill now has most post-war league goals against Liverpool

Liverpool have long been sick of the sight of Tim Cahill – now the Australian international’s torment of the men from Anfield has reached record-breaking proportions.

Cahill’s venomous opener in Sunday’s Merseyside derby was his fifth against Everton’s arch-rivals, a strike which means no post-war player has more league goals against Liverpool than the prickly midfielder.

“It is always good to score goals but it is an even better feeling to get them against Liverpool,” Cahill, who got his first derby goal in a 2-1 away defeat in March 2005, told evertontv.

The 30-year-old scored his second against the Reds – again at Anfield and again in defeat – a year later before notching in the 3-0 home win in September 2006.

Cahill had to wait almost two-and-a-half years for his next derby goal as he snatched an equaliser at Anfield last term, while his unstoppable opener on Sunday completes a memorable quintet.

That took him ahead of Graeme Sharp – who has seven against the Reds, but only four in the league – but Cahill was more interested in the collective good than taking individual plaudits.

He said: “It was a massive result for us but it was most important for the fans. I want them to enjoy it. They have had a tough start to the season and, regardless of the off the field distractions surrounding the game, we need to enjoy it as we deserve to – this type of thing is what the fans live for.

Cahill added: “Seamus Coleman gives a different dimension with the way he can beat players and he did well to create the goal. He went past a few of them, got to the line and put in a great cross – I was lucky enough to be in a position to score.

“We will continue to take it a game at a time but this was a big step for us as had we lost we would have been back under pressure.”

Edvard ChanThe real steal would be to net Torres from right under Hodgson's nose haha...

Mikel ArreguiCongrats Tim, you're a legend! Hope you grow that number in the return match :) Dixie's 18 league goals are incredible, so was he, but the closer you get to him the better for the club!

Sammy OwenWell done Timmy, but the main one will be at Anfield in the away leg..... Score one there and you'll go down as our highest scorer in Merseyside derbys at their place in history, breaking a record held by a certain Mr. Dixie Dean... We're rooting for ya Tim.

Paul HowellsGo on Timmy, beat Sharpy's record! Get 7 in the league alone, a hat trick in the cup would be nice too, preferably in a final where we dont concede either :) COYB!!

John HauIt must feel good to score a Derby goal and it has been a while since we had someone on the right who could go down the byeline and make a decent crosses into the box, Donovan has done his share during his 10 weeks loan last season and we were hoping Anichebe could do something similiar but unfortunately got himself injured, and as many Evertonian crying for Moyes to give Coleman a try there, our pray is finally answer and after couple of game adjustment he has finally comes good in the Derby game, long may it continue. I am sure Baines, Coleman and Pienaar would keep providing these chances for the attackers, It would be delightful if Yakubu and Cahill could keep putting those chance away in the upcoming games!
