Cahill not distracted by Tevez saga

Tim Cahill has insisted Everton will not be distracted by the Carlos Tevez saga, as the Australian claims the team have to focus on their own troubles going into the clash between the two teams.

The saga surrounding Tevez's future is threatening to overshadow Everton's Premier League trip to Eastlands on Monday. The Toffees have troubles of their own, as they have bagged just 18 goals this season and sit a mere two points above the relegation places.

Cahill admits the lack of punch in front of goal is a source of frustration, but he has insisted the players are ready to roll their sleeves up and fight.

"The main thing is we are training well and our performances have been solid," Cahill told Sky Sports News. "It is frustrating as the fans know what we can do and what we can achieve, but if it does not hit the back of the net it means nothing. We are going to fight hard and make sure we are always in the trenches."

Looking ahead to the trip to Eastlands, Cahill insists it is a test Everton will relish and will not be distracted by the talk surrounding Tevez.

"This is a massive game," he said. "We love going to big stadiums and playing big teams like Manchester City. For us we relish the opportunity playing one of the biggest teams in the world at the moment. It is all for us to take."

On the Tevez saga, Cahill added: "It is not anything I am interested in nor are any of the lads. Who knows what the situation really is. I respect the players' decisions and clubs and the best thing for us is to concentrate on our own game."
