Barry refusing to budge as EPL record beckons

Barry refusing to budge as EPL record beckons

After spending a successful season on loan at Everton in 2013/14, Barry joined the Toffees on a free transfer and was a key player for three seasons before signing for West Bromwich Albion during the summer transfer window.

West Brom, though, could pick up a point from the Monday night fixture.

The Gunners finished fifth in the Premier League table last season but beat Chelsea to win the FA Cup for the third time in four seasons.

Speaking ahead of the game, Arsene Wenger refuted suggestions he may go back in for Evans in the future.

"My family will be at the game but there won't be a smile on my face after anything other than a positive result!"

Mesut Ozil is in contention to return to the Arsenal team for the match.

Danny Welbeck (groin), Francis Coquelin (hamstring) and Santi Cazorla (ankle) are missing, as is Calum Chambers who has suffered a recurrence of a recent hip problem.

Barry will register his 633rd appearance in the rebranded top-flight against Arsenal, breaking a record previously held by Ryan Giggs, yet is talking openly about playing football into his 40s.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis may need to make changes to his starting lineup with Chris Brunt, Burke, Chadli all carrying injuries.

Arsene Wenger was days away from winning the English Premier League for the first time as Arsenal manager.

"It's lovely to hear from him, passing the Premier League record over".

The Gunners have now won seven successive Premier League games at the Emirates Stadium; their second best winning run at the stadium in the competition after a nine-match winning streak between December 2014 and April 2015.

Only a year ago, he was being hailed as "one of the best English players ever" by then-Everton coach Roberto Martinez, who is admittedly prone to hyperbole, after a man-of-the-match performance against Manchester City in the EFL Cup semi-finals. The Baggies will look to frustrate Arsenal and pick off set-plays where they can. "I've been able to keep going".
