VMC Man of The Match No.54 versus West Ham United

VMC Man of The Match No.54 versus West Ham United

Pablo Zabaleta came to town on the same day as the dreadfully disloyal Robinho. How many punters would have predicted which player would go on to win the City fans hearts?

Since the last day of August 2008 Zaba has clocked up 98 league and cup starts for The Citizens and bagged 3 league goals, the latest coming against the doomed Hammers at the weekend.

With a fighting spirit second to none, the multi talented Argentinian has become one of the most influential players in Roberto Mancini's squad and his efforts have helped The Blues maintain a top four challenge throughout the season.

The VMC Forum posse saw enough to make Zaba our Man of The Match in the club's latest important victory. His tenacity will prove crucial in the 5 remaining fixtures.

In other results, YaYa Toure is really starting to scare the living daylights out of defenders alongside David Silva and his cunning plans with perfect timing!

Meanwhile Joleon Lescott is in fine form in adavance of the horrible reception he will receive at bitter Everton.
