Gareth Barry insists he's ready to make his Everton debut against Chelsea this weekend.

The loan signing from Manchester City hasn't played competitive football since last season but declared himself fit enough to be thrust into battle with Jose Mourinho's men.

Barry, 32, wasn't part of City boss' Manuel Pellegrini's plans but has kept himself optimum shape before agreeing a season-long switch to the Blues.

He told evertontv: "It's a fantastic first game to potentially be involved in but it's the manager's decision because I have not played loads of minutes at the moment.

"I feel fit. I haven't missed a day's training and I featured in bits and bobs of the pre-season games.

"The season's a well underway now and I've not played but I am confident If asked to play I can do a good job."

Tickets to watch Everton face Chelsea on Saturday (5.30pm kick off) are still available. Click here to buy online, call 0871 663 1878* or visit the box office, Everton Two or the Ticket Quarter.
