Barry ready for new stars

08 Sep 2006 - 08:54:18

Aston Villa captain Gareth Barry intends to ensure Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano endure Premiership debuts they will remember for all the wrong reasons.

The Argentina internationals will make their West Ham bows against Villa at Upton Park on Sunday following their shock deadline day arrival from Corinthians.

The match is sure to attract extensive media attention, but Barry insists that will not distract a rejuvenated Villa side from the task of extending their unbeaten run.

"The big shock was that one minute they were being linked with Chelsea and Man United and all of a sudden West Ham signed them," he told Villa's official website.

"We will be getting the first of them and hopefully we can show them what the Premiership is all about and make the headlines.

"They are quality players, they are Argentina internationals, but the Premiership is a different ball game and them being involved is not going to change us thinking we can get a result."
