Record Breaker Barry
Gareth Barry has become the Premier League’s all-time record appearance holder after he was named in West Brom’s starting XI to face Arsenal.
The 36-year-old midfielder moves ahead of Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs, who featured in 632 games in England’s top-flight after its rebranding in 1992.
Barry began his career at Aston Villa, making his league debut in 1998, and has also represented Manchester City, Everton and now West Brom in the Premier League.
In total, the former England midfielder has made an incredible 600 starts in England’s top-flight league, scoring 52 goals and recording 63 assists over a 20-year period.
