Everton-s Australian midfielder Tim Cahill (pictured right) was the star of the show, with a goal and the supplier of two more goals that the Merseysiders scored in a 3-1 win at Aston Villa.
The win lifted Everton eight points clear of their Merseyside rivals Liverpool, who play the Carling Cup Final tonight against Chelsea, in the battle for the lucrative fourth spot in next seasons European Champions League.
Cahill was a constant menace for Villa right throughout and he could have had more than one goal, as his late runs into the Villa penalty box caused all sorts of problems.
He set up the first goal for Leon Osman with a terrific cross from the left that was headed home at the back post.
Towards the end of the first half, Cahill could have put Everton two up but blasted high and wide from the left side of the box.
Villa equalised a minute after the break, but Cahill had other ideas and within a minute had put Everton back in the lead when he headed home Marcus Bent-s cross for his seventh goal of the season.
Cahill then sent Osman away for his second goal with a magnificent defence splitting ball.
