VIDEO: Tim Cahill suffers nasty cut to the eye

The former Everton striker took a knock to the head in A League action, opening up a gash above his right eye.

Saturday was not a great day for Melbourne City's Tim Cahill.

The former Everton star saw his side take a 3-0 beating from A-League leaders Sydney FC and to make matters worse, took a pretty nasty cut on his head for his troubles.

A hard collision in the 70th minute left Cahill with a gash and blood dripping down onto his jersey.

Melbourne City remain third in the A-League after the loss, though level on points with Brisbane Roar.
