Zaba eyes Europe

Pablo Zabaleta wants to move on and be fighting for European qualification.

The veteran defender has been inspirational for the Irons this season but wants an end to months of struggle as soon as possible.

Speaking to the official site he said: “We want to be safe as soon as possible.  If you look at the season, we’ve had so many ups and downs and to be good enough to look up and fight for European qualification or something like that, you need to be more consistent to give yourselves that chance.

“The reality is we are only four points above the relegation zone, so we need four or five more wins to be safe. It’s not going to be easy.

“I’d rather be playing on Saturday as that would mean we’re still in the FA Cup, but we’ve got so many players coming back from injury and a free weekend will give the manager an extra week to recover them for the next game against Liverpool.

“We need the whole squad because everyone is important and we need to give our best to the team in the big games we have coming up.”

  1. That’s the right atttide Zaba we need 4 or 5 more wins then def Safe prob top 10 too. Let’s not just go for Draws. We can finish these season off really well in hood momentum have Arnie in form of his career Lanzini coming back. Ginge a Rock. Cress crossing. Kouyate & Antonio looking back stro g again & of course CHic has been great w 3 goals & Mario slotted right in.
    I don’t see any reason why we cna surprise Liverpool like last season w Arnie & Lanzini on break. Take a point there but 11 games left I’d like to see 4 or 5 wins and we have the team that van do it.
    We need 2 Wins in a row haven’t got all season so hopping to upset Liverpool. We know their weaknesses & play for corner have Ginge on front Post. I believe we can win it.

    Team is happy I’m form & playing like a team most importantly & loving it. Watford was great let build on that
