Pablo Zabaleta’s final home game in a City shirt saw the Blues win 3-1 against West Brom, all but securing a place in next year’s Champions League. Obviously the emphasis on the fixture fell on the tributes to Zabaleta who is coming to the end of his nine year journey with the club.
Twitter was soon full of personal tributes and well wishes from City fans over the world to celebrate what an absolute legend this man is. There were also a few mentions about a football game that happened to take place as well tonight…
Here’s what you had to say.

Pablo Zabaleta <3.
Watching his farewell genuinely had me welling up, with no shame at all, one of the greatest right-backs in Premier League history #MCFC

Superb performances from the men in blue.
A fitting send off to the legend that is Zaba. Kompany, KDB and Agüero all superb, Yaya showed why he deserves another season. #mcfc

KDB is cheeky tonight pinching the ball away and making it look so easy. #MCFC

Does Yaya deserve a new deal?
Anyone else hope Yaya Toure gets a new deal so he can get the same send off Zaba got? Can't let him leave without a proper goodbye #mcfc

City MUST keep Yaya. #mcfc
