    Pep's fullback position is where Zab was born to play

    Yep that pass to Kolarov was brilliant.

    Especially as there's 18 extra leg room seats on a Jet2 flight.

    I thought he looked good, sagna also looked good. My heart tells me zab is better suited to this position than sagna.

    would love to see he stats for the night ( i know they dont tell the whole story)

    thoughts football lovers?

    Fernandinho will be better than both of them.

    Well played though, Zabba. Let's see he's given a chance to hang around. Definitely lost weight and looked sharp.

    Yet another interesting development, cant take your eyes off anyone and anything at the moment.

    I see even Brian Kidd has a new role,,

    Sagna was a much better RB last year, but attacking wise, Zabaleta is still a superior player and he just seemed much more intelligent in this inverted fullback role than Sagna on Saturday.

    Ok, shite opposition, but still... Hopefully his fitness level will be enough to maintain these types of performances.

    Oh, and seeing him as a captain is always a heart-warming stuff.

    Zabba was immense tonight playing that role when he moved into midfield, easily the best fullback we have to do that
