Everton ace Gareth Barry has enjoyed his midfield partnership with James McCarthy.

The pair have been dubbed the "perfect blend" by manager Roberto Martinez.

"Obviously he's worked with the manager before and that's helped him, and I've really enjoyed playing alongside him," Barry told evertonfc.com.

"It's not like you're playing alongside a young player to be honest, it feels like you're playing alongside someone who's played a lot of games."
