Everton ace Tim Cahill insists their season is not a write-off.

Cahill says he is convinced Everton will come good this season, despite a recent mini recovery being punctured by Stoke's victory at Goodison Park last weekend and the Blues now facing a testing trip to Arsenal.

"It is such a long season and there is still 30 games to go," he declared.

"I'm pretty sure there is going to be loads more to talk about from now until the end of the season.

"For me and the club it is about being consistent and maintaining that and trying to see where we finish. We nearly always come good all the time so it is more about taking it one game at a time and making sure we stay focused on what it important and that is basically getting results - whether it is a draw or a win.

"With our squad and the team we have got we are doing pretty well."
