Hogg is one of only a handful of players to survive from last season under the Italian's revolution at Vicarage Road, coming after his summer appointment following June's takeover by the Pozzo family.

Not only that, but Hogg can in fact claim to be the Hornets' most used outfield player this term, racking up an unrivalled 19 starts in all competitions.

And the battling lynchpin is happy to have been noted for his worth by Zola.

"I'm glad he has put his faith in me," Hogg told Press Association Sport.

"I'm one of those players who does a job for the team. Most fans won't pick up on what I do, but I go out there and run my socks off and do a job for the team.

"Hopefully the more success the team gets then the more noticeable recognition all of us get because we all deserve some credit for the performances we've been putting in.

"We've got a lot of different players in the team this year, a lot of different qualities compared to what we had last year. The gaffer's put a lot of faith in me, playing me every time I've been fit. I'm really happy with that."

And Hogg has revealed Zola could still do a job for Watford in attack, despite the former Chelsea and Italy international being 46 years of age.

"He joins in training now and again and I don't think he's lost any of it, to be fair, he's fantastic sometimes in training. He puts some of us to shame with some of things he does," Hogg added.

"It's an absolute joy to work with him."
