West Ham fans heap praise on Pablo Zabaleta

West Ham fans just can’t get enough of Pablo Zabaleta, after the former Manchester City man dropped another brilliant performance on Saturday.

When Pablo Zabaleta left Manchester City to join West Ham last summer, Hammers’ fans themselves probably couldn’t even predict he would perform as well as he has.

The Argentine flying full back doesn’t do much flying down the wing anymore, which certainly prompted some concerns that he was a worthless signing.

Those concerns have been well and truly been put to bed this season though, as the 33 year-old hasn’t let his declining pace stop him from being one of the Hammers’ best players.

Zabaleta was at his very best again on Saturday, as the David Moyes’ side secured Premier League survival with a 2-0 win at Leicester.

The Argentine veteran gave absolutely everything in the win at the King Power Stadium, making two tackles, one interception, four clearances and also blocking one shot.

Zabaleta may have lost the pace to overlap his winger and whip constant dangerous crosses in, but his experience, intelligence and passion for the game has been a huge help for the Hammers this season.
