Zabaleta did not want to pick out many individual performances in what had been a fine all-round effort.
The 28-year-old said: "That is why I always say we have got fantastic players in the team - good names - but we also show a great spirit. We fight for each other.
"When we show that spirit and everyone gives everything for each other Manchester City are a difficult team to beat.
"We showed that and that is why I am really happy."
