Vital MC Man Of The Match Awards: Wigan

Google language translator

Pablo Zabaleta is proving to be one of the finest Premier League signings of the season...

The lad has got guts by the lorryload and shifted seamlessly into midfield against Wigan with orders to 'mix it' and did just that, capping an all round MOTM display with a cracking goal.

Many of the Vital MC community have been calling for Zab to get a run in midfield and we weren't disappointed when Mark Hughes finally gave him the nod.

Zabaleta is showing all the best qualities in the roles Hughes is asking him to do. He has nothing to fear about the future arrival of new players, however expensive they are. Right now he is part of the cadre of professionals the team is being built upon. The others are Robinho, Kompany, SWP and Ireland. Any one of these five would walk into Top 4 teams

Have to hand it to Hughes over Zab, Vinny and SWP. TBH a disaster and Berti, a mystery.
