  • Gareth Barry sets Premier League record with 572nd career start

Gareth Barry stands alone in the Premier League record book. Seriously.

By virtue of winning a place in Everton's lineup for Wednesday's contest against Sunderland, the 35-year-old midfielder set a new record with his 572nd career start in England's top flight.

Barry equaled the mark set by well-traveled goalkeeper David James earlier this season, and eclipsed it at the Stadium of Light.
