Everton are yet lose a league game this season when Barry has played, and Martinez explains that the 32-year-old has been 'in the middle of all the good things we have done'.

The same story is carried in the Daily Star Sunday, with Martinez adding that Barry is still 'one of the best' midfielders in the Premier League.
