Everton midfield man Tim Cahill looks certain to miss the rest of the season after breaking a metatarsal bone in the draw at Sheffield United.
Everton's Tim Cahill is out for the remainder of the campaign
The Australian midfielder was carried off in the first half at Bramall Lane.
Everton boss David Moyes said: "It's a real big blow for us, because we have only had him back for four weeks after a serious knee injury.
"He is so important to what we do because he gives us the physical side of his game and also gets goal."
Cahill had an X-ray immediately at Bramall Lane, which confirmed the extent of the injury.
