It’s been a mixed season so far for Everton. The Toffees have endured a tough run of results under Marco Silva, but there have been signs of improvement. Generally speaking, the style of play has been good, and at points, it’s been easy to see what they’ve have been aiming for, at least in terms of tactics. However, at present, it’s all just a little bit unrefined.
Unfortunately for Everton, however, this weekend they’re facing a team that is perhaps one of the most refined in the league in the shape of Liverpool. Indeed, the Merseyside derby is back, and it’s set to be a huge game.
Of course, a win for Everton could play a huge role in preventing their local rivals from winning the Premier League, whilst it would also hugely aid the confidence levels of the team.
| @Tim_Cahill loved playing in Merseyside derbies – almost as much as he loved scoring in them!

Unsurprisingly, then, lots of Everton fans have responded to pay tribute to the club legend. They can’t get enough of him, and most seem hopeful that he’ll return to the club soon. See below:
That’s what passion looks like. If the lads can show that on Sunday, we can give it a good go.

I know we didn’t win anything when you were there Tim, but I still count you as an Everton legend. You brought passion, hunger, desire and goals. We Evertonians miss you dearly
