Cahill says it is time for him and his teammates to call upon the collective will that has been their trademark under David Moyes.
The Aussie told evertontv: "It is all about getting out there and doing what we do best. It is what we have built our reputation on - the players working for each other. There is so much to play for and I feel we have so much more to give.
"It is a fantastic club with great players and the thing here is that every player gets a chance. Our success has always been because of the team and never just one player.
"The biggest thing for us is that some of our performances have been great. You think you'd prefer to win ugly, but if we keep playing good football the results will come. Once we get into the habit of winning again we will climb the table.
"This team is too good to be involved in the (relegation) mixer but it is time for us to start showing it."
