Kurt Zouma was absolutely sensational for West Ham United vs Wolves at the London Stadium this afternoon.

The 27-year-old has been deeply embroiled in controversy over the past three weeks after a video emerged of him kicking and slapping his pet cat.

What’s done is done now though. Zouma was heavily fined with the money from his wages being given to various different animal charities.

The Frenchman has been incredible for West Ham after the shocking incident with his pet cat came to light, however.

Signed from Chelsea in the summer for just under £30 million, Zouma has been a standout performer for the Hammers.

The injury that he suffered against Chelsea in December really proved to be costly for West Ham as we suffered badly without him for the six weeks that he was on the sidelines.

Thank God that he’s back now though. We are so much more of a defensively solid side when Zouma is playing.

The powerful centre-back was absolutely dominant for the Hammers at the London Stadium this afternoon.

David Moyes would have been delighted with the way in which his best centre-back commanded the back-line against Wolves with authority.

Zouma made two tackles, three interceptions, four blocks and an unbelievable 10 clearances. He also won four aerial duels (Who Scored).

The 27-year-old put in a truly exceptional all-round display and kept Wolves at arms length for the duration of the game.

He was the standout performer for West Ham United by an absolute country mile.

The former Chelsea ace is a truly elite central defender.

He has helped West Ham move on to another level this season and has the ability to go on and become one of our very best centre-backs in the modern era.

It is absolutely vital that he remains fit between now and the end of the season, if the Hammers are to have any chance whatsoever of finishing inside the top four this season.

£30 million could end up looking like an absolute steal for Zouma. David Moyes has to be given a lot of credit for bringing Kurt to the London Stadium.

Hopefully all of his personal problems are well and truly behind him now and he will continue to go from strength to strength.
