The Australian international has not found the back of the net since December last year, but the Toffees' manager has backed the midfielder to end the season on double figures

Everton manager David Moyes has backed midfielder Tim Cahill to return to goalscoring form in the Premier League in the near future.

Cahill has not scored for his club since December last year, and has failed to find the form that once saw him as one of the most prolific attacking midfielders in the English top flight.

But Moyes has insisted that the Australian international will hit the back of the net soon, claiming that he could still finish the season in double figures.

"It has been difficult for Tim," said Moyes.

"He has not really recovered correctly since he came back from the Asian Cup last season and he has found it quite tough since then.

"I have no doubt his goals will come - he will get his goals; he has got them every other year and I've no reason to think he won't.

"The sooner he starts the better but I believe he will get his usual tally of between eight and 10 goals a season."

The 31-year-old came close to ending his drought against Wolves on Saturday, but his manager moved to take the pressure off the attacking midfielder, claiming that the most important thing is that the team is winning.

"Tim had a great chance against Wolves and we want them [the Everton forwards] to score but we've always said it is a team game and it doesn't matter who scores the goals as long as the team wins,” he added.
