Gareth Barry - the great Premier League survivor

Gareth Barry - the great Premier League survivor

The Gunners have made something of a mixed start to the new Premier League season but earned praise as they battled to a goalless draw with defending champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

ARSENAL could welcome back Mesut Ozil but it will be a game-time decision on whether to risk the German global.

Gareth Barry will break the Premier League appearance record and play in his 633rd top-flight game if he features against the Gunners.

"Whether it will stay around for long I don't know", he said.

On the verge of joining Manchester City from Aston Villa in 2009, Wenger was extremely interested in acquiring the England International but missed out.

Hopefully that's a base for them to work from and it's important they keep that momentum going into this game.

Barry credits his longevity to avoiding serious injury and to support from some now-retired former teammates.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis had a fine transfer window as he radically improved his squad - but it could be a one-off What time is kick-off?

That is still not the case for Barry.

Gareth Barry could become the outright leader in terms of most Premier League appearances should he play in this match.

Barry featured 365 times for Villa in the Premier League, on 132 occasions for Man City and 131 times for Everton, who he left to join West Brom in the summer.

Barry has since revealed that Wenger also tried to recruit him in 2014 prior to his move to Everton.

"I am sure that he will have great motivation and will have a huge influence at West Brom, and it can give another push to his career". With the opposition's happiness to relinquish possession and suffocate the space in their own defensive third, remaining narrow in and around the penalty area, and ensuring that the only space they allow is out wide and in deeper areas, being able to dictate and orchestrate from the anchoring midfield position can determine the success in attempting to engineer and create chances. Globally, though, the most vivid image of Barry in an England shirt was in 2010 when he trailed in the wake of Mesut Ozil in the buildup to Germany's final goal in their 4-1 win in the round-of-16 at the World Cup finals.
