Tim Cahill is hopeful teammate Jermaine Beckford can end his first season with Everton by scoring a landmark goal.

The 27-year-old currently has nine strikes to his name this campaign and a goal against Chelsea on Sunday would take him level with Toffees top-scorer Louis Saha on 10.

And, having made the jump from npower League One to the Barclays Premier League last summer, Cahill believes a double-figure goal tally would represent quite an achievement for Beckford.

“Beckford is on nine goals and that is fantastic. Hopefully he can get his 10th at the weekend and end up as the top goalscorer as that would be really good for him. It would be an achievement in his first season.”


Cahill himself could also finish the season at the top of the Everton scoring charts as he also has nine goals to his name.

The Australian, however, hasn't found the net since December 20, although he did miss month of the season on international duty at the Asia Cup.
