Gareth Barry is ready for his Everton debut this weekend against Chelsea.

Barry signed for Everton on-loan from Manchester City last week.

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."
