What The Papers Say - 30 September

The views on this page ate taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.

Gareth Barry is the centre of attention in Monday's newspapers as the midfielder prepares to join the elite band of players to make 500 Premier League appearances tonight.

The 32-year-old is set to reach the landmark when Everton face Newcastle at Goodison Park and, in the Liverpool Echo, Blues boss Roberto Martinez says the achievement is testament to the player's professionalism and dedication to looking after himself.

In various other newspapers, including the Daily Star, Daily Mirror and the Daily Telegraph, Martinez expands on the subject to say Barry could become a key player for Everton for years to come, tipping the on-loan Manchester City man to play on well into his 30s.

Back to the Liverpool Echo and Martinez reveals he is happy with how his side have plugged the gap left by Marouane Fellaini's departure to Manchester United.

The Spaniard also tells the same newspaper his three strikers - Romelu Lukaku, Nikica Jelavic and Arouna Kone - will each need to work hard to prove they are worthy of a regular starting role.
