Good fortune has certainly not been shining on Tim Cahill this term.

No sooner has he recovered from a serious knee ligament injury sustained in an accidental collision with a teammate than he falls awkwardly on his foot, breaking one of those wretched metatarsals.

That latest setback occurred at Sheffield United last weekend. It came just as Cahill seemed to be getting back to top form. He had not netted since his return to action against Reading in January but at Bramall Lane, his sixth game back, he looked sharp before fate struck him down.

Minutes earlier, Claude Davies had been forced into clearing off his own line after a Cahill header at the back post had beaten Paddy Kenny.

The prognosis is that Cahill will now miss the remaining nine games, such is the period of rehabilitation for such an injury.

He will be fit again to represent Australia in the Asia Cup in July, just as Everton turn their attentions towards the 2007/2008 season.

But how big a loss is Cahill to the Blues' hopes of securing European football for next season?

Is he the key, or can David Moyes' men overcome his loss? Which player can step up to the plate and provide the same kind of goalscoring threat that made Cahill such a useful weapon?

Is there any way that the loss of Cahill could benefit the squad in terms of galvanising the ranks in their mission to finish in the top six?
