Mauro Zarate highlights favourite West Ham moment, and it came this season

Upton Park

Mauro Zarate's favourite West Ham moment came against Arsenal this season.

Mauro Zarate has told the club's official Twitter account that his favourite West Ham moment came against Arsenal on the opening weekend of this season.

The Argentine, 28, was a bit-part player in his debut season at the club, before spending the second half of the campaign on loan at Queens Park Rangers.

New manager Slaven Bilic was pressed in to using Zarate early in to this season though, with injuries to Enner Valencia and Andy Carroll leaving him short of options in the final third.

Zarate started West Ham's first game of the season away at Arsenal, and played a key part by scoring the second goal in their 2-0 win at the Emirates Stadium.

Now, in a Q&A on West Ham's official Twitter account, Zarate has admitted that his goal against Arsenal is his favourite moment with the club so far.

With Valencia and Carroll returning, Diafra Sakho back and Nikica Jelavic snapped up, Zarate has plenty of competition for a striking position under Bilic.

The good thing for Zarate is that he's different to those forwards. He can play as a creative No. 10 behind a striker, something those other players can't do - and whilst he's clear on what his favourite moment is so far, he will be hoping to carve out a role in the West Ham team and make many more memories yet.
