Tim Cahill celebrated his return to Everton's starting line-up with the winner in a thrilling 3-2 victory over Stoke at the Britannia Stadium.

Cahill had yet to feature this season as he had been sidelined by the broken metatarsal that kept him out for much of the last campaign but he marked his surprise inclusion by striking the decisive blow, heading home Mikel Arteta's corner in the 76th minute.

Everton had taken a two-goal lead with strikes from Ayegbeni Yakubu and Victor Anichebe either side of half-time before Stoke fought back and restored parity through Seyi Olofinjana and Phil Jagielka's own goal.
