Despite the controversy surrounding his involvement, Zouma recorded a solid performance in the first half at the London Stadium.
He made four clearances and three interceptions and won all five of his aerial duels, maintaining a 90% pass accuracy in the process.
Zouma also completed six of his nine attempted long balls as he showcased that the uproar surrounding his actions away from the pitch isn’t affecting him.
Whether he will start West Ham’s next game as the investigation continues remains to be seen, but it’s clear to see why Moyes wanted him to play against Watford as the top-four fight continues.
