Barry set to equal Premier League appearance record

"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".

However, Barry's perspective has probably been the highlight of his game.

"It's nice for my family and something to make them proud".

"I think there's gas in the tank yet". It's gone so quickly, I've been lucky to keep fit through the years.

"I'm delighted to achieve those kind of figures but while I am still playing, it is not something I spend too much time thinking about", he said. "He was a left-back then and he has come on from that talented young player to become a regular Premier League player".

The result put the Hammers level on points with Everton, which travels to Manchester United on Monday (AEST), while West Brom moved on to eight points from five games.


"I have always rated him as a player but you don't realise how good he is until you actually work with him".

He also won the title with Manchester City in 2012 and earned 53 England caps.

52 - goals scored by Barry in his top-flight career, 41 of them for Aston Villa including nine in his most prolific season in 2007-08.

West Bromwich Albion benefited from a slice of luck and refereeing leniency in its 0-0 Premier League draw with West Ham United on Sunday (AEST).

West Ham's frustrations were even greater just three minutes later as Foster escaped with a yellow card after racing from his goal and bringing down Hernandez with a thigh-high challenge that mercifully made little contact with the striker.

"He is a top person and a top player". He'll break my record and credit to him, records are there to be broken.
