Cahill wins Opta player of the season

Last updated : 19 May 2005 By Austin Rathe
Cahill top scored for everton with 11 goals, and was one of only three midfielders in the premiership to reach double figures. Not even Steven "the man" Gerrard managed that. £30m? Maybe not.

Everton's second best player was the sadly departed Thomas Gravesen, who's stats came mainly from setting up goals from set pieces. One hopes that next year Mikeal Arteta will be doing the same thing. He came third, by the way.
