Gareth Barry revealed his pride at clocking up 500 Premier League games – but immediately targeted many more in the blue of Everton.
 
The Manchester City midfielder moved to Merseyside on a season-long loan at the end of the transfer window and made his third appearance for the Toffees in Monday's 3-2 win over Newcastle United.
 
An assured performance in the centre of the park followed his outstanding debut display against Chelsea and tireless run out at West Ham – taking the England man up to the rare, treasured milestone.

"I'm really lucky to have reached 500 games," the 32-year-old said. "I've stayed injury-free for this long. I want to keep going and help Everton up this league table for as long as possible. It's fantastic, but it's all about the three points tonight.
 
"I made my debut [for Aston Villa] 15 years ago, but time flies, especially when you're playing Premier League football as you dreamed of as a child. For that reason, I'm going to try to play on for as long as possible."
 
Presenting the man of the match award to two-goal hero Romelu Lukaku, Barry helped summarise the thoughts of the dressing room after Roberto Martinez's side saw a 3-0 half-time lead narrowed down to a one-goal cushion in a tense finale at Goodison.
 
He said: "We started so well with a fantastic tempo, we kept the ball well and created so many chances that it could have been four or five.
 
"But fair play to Newcastle, they came out and made a game of it, as we thought they would. We're slightly disappointed with the second-half performance but it's another big three points. We're still unbeaten and we've got to try to keep that going as long as possible.
 
"The two games I've played [at Goodison] have been fantastic. Obviously it helps winning them, but the support here is always good and night games create a good atmosphere at Goodison."
