Cahill convinced Anichebe will win back Everton fans

Everton star Tim Cahill is convinced Victor Anichebe can win over Toffees fans.

David Moyes tied Anichebe to a new four-and-a-half year contract in January, and fans' favourite Cahill insists it is not easy dealing with the pressure of Premier League football at such a young age.

He told the Liverpool Echo: "Victor has had a few injuries but his work ethic and what he did on Saturday showed what the lad is all about. It's hard, people need to understand he's still a young boy.

"There is a lot of expectation when you break into a first team from such a young age. When you lose the ball and the crowd get on top of you there's pressure.

"I got it all the time but luckily enough I can deal with it. Other people react differently, but on Saturday his reaction was first class.

"This is a turning point for the crowd and Victor. Hopefully he can now fulfil his potential because he's got a lot of talent."
