Barry hails Everton fans for part in Chelsea shock

Gareth Barry hailed the influence of Everton fans in their shock win over Chelsea.

Barry, on-loan from Manchester City, was outstanding on debut.

"I've said all week that I had been looking forward to being on the right side of fans," Barry told evertonfc.com. "They are the 12th man and to have them on our side made the difference in the end. It was brilliant and hopefully that can continue all season.

"There was a fantastic atmosphere out there. These night games at Goodison always have a great atmosphere and the boys put in a great shift and thoroughly deserved the three points."
