The French centre-back has everything needed to become a world-class centre-half.

He is strong, quick along the ground and dominant in the air.

The former Chelsea man oozes coolness and composure as well, so much so that since he has joined, the West Ham defence has not once looked panicked.

Kurt Zouma stats are hugely impressive

Stats sometimes don’t tell the whole story.

They do lend credence to a point of view or an opinion, however. And that’s certainly the case with the numbers that Zouma has posted so far this season.

In five Premier League appearances so far for West Ham, Zouma has averaged one tackle, 1.4 interceptions, 1.2 blocks and an incredible 5.2 clearances per game (Who Scored).

The 26-year-old has won an average of 2.2 aerial duels per match and has recorded an impressive completion rate of 85% from 41.2 passes per game (Who Scored).

What a brilliant start Zouma has made to life at the London Stadium.

 

David Moyes got this one bang on.
