Mikel Arteta feels the good times will return to Everton with the comeback of Tim Cahill.

Cahill hasn't started for Everton since the 2-0 defeat to Stoke City on New Year's Day but was involved as a substitute in the 5-3 win against Blackpool following his return from Asian Cup duty in Qatar.

"It's really important for the team and for Tim himself, he's been out for four or five weeks now and we've missed him," Arteta told evertontv.

"We need his goals as well, he's capable of making a difference at the top end of the pitch and hopefully now he's back he'll score the goals again."
