Cahill focused on Chelsea

Published Add your comment

Tim Cahill will not let the disappointment of losing the Merseyside derby affect Everton's preparations for next weekend's clash with Chelsea.

The Toffees were defeated 2-0 by their local rivals at Goodison Park, after Jack Rodwell was controversially sent off in the first half for a tackle on Luis Suarez.

Rodwell has since seen his red card rescinded on appeal - a decision which would have been greeted with mixed emotions at Everton, with Blues pondering what might have been if the derby had remained 11-men apiece.

Cahill, though, is ready to forget the events of last Saturday afternoon and focus his attention solely on the visit to Stamford Bridge after the international break.

"It is always sad to lose a derby," he told the official Everton website. "Especially in circumstances like that where you lose a player.


"I thought we were on top early in the game and were pressing them. It looked like it was going to go well until a poor decision made a massive impact on it.

"But we have to look forward now.

"The derby is something magical and a game we all enjoy so it is disheartening when you lose, but we really need to pick ourselves up now and look to the Chelsea game."
