Gareth Barry equals Ryan Giggs' Premier League appearance record

Gareth Barry equals Ryan Giggs' Premier League appearance record”

The 36-year-old is set to make his 632nd appearance in the top flight on Saturday as the Baggies prepare to face West Ham United.

Giggs and Barry are joined by some legendary Chelsea, Newcastle, Liverpool, Everton and Arsenal players of years gone by - plus a few stars still going today.

It is almost 20 years since his debut...

"You don't really think about these milestones when you are playing, you just look to keep playing well every week, do a job for your club and stay in the team".

"Naturally, I am very proud to achieve those things". Looking at the stats, to have started 599 out of 631 so far, that is a bit surprising because that's a pretty good percentage.

"It's game by game, season by season, but I think there's some gas in the tank yet!"

Barry, who began his career outside the Premier League with Brighton, made his first appearance in the division during the 1997-98 campaign after signing for Aston Villa.

Barry reportedly cost West Brom just £800,000 as he made the switch from Everton in the summer.

"It may be an unforgettable game for the former England midfielder but I'm not convinced it will be a great spectacle for the neutral and don't expect to see many goals". If you only watch football on Match of the Day, you might have missed him.

"But he has been absolutely fantastic for us".

"He is a top person and a top player".
