City are unlikely to retain the Premier League title after consistently failing to keep up with league leaders Manchester United throughout the season, and they currently find themselves a massive 12 points behind their arch-rivals with only seven more league games to play.
The Citizens were also knocked out of the Champions League during the group stages and failed to get beyond the third round of the Capital One Cup.
However, City still have a chance of lifting a trophy this season. Roberto Mancini's men are just one step away from reaching the final of the FA Cup, but they will first have to navigate their way past Chelsea in the semi-finals on Sunday.
And Zabaleta has set his sights on leading City to their second FA Cup win in three years.
When asked about his thoughts on the current season, Zabaleta, one of the strongest candidate for City's player of the year, told the club's official website: "On a personal note I have enjoyed this season and being a regular in the team has been fantastic, but if we can win the FA Cup it would be even better.
"Every time you see your name on the team-sheet you feel proud and an important member of the squad.
"The Premier League is the one everyone really wants to win but the FA Cup would be a great end to the season."
Zabaleta also hailed the Argentine influence within the club, with compatriot strikers Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero proving to be invaluable members of the team.
"We have three Argentinian players in our team and it is very special for Carlos and Kun to be able to play together in the same club team," Zabaleta added.
"We've known each other for many years and because they are both strikers, they can change the game at any time.
"They have great quality and can score out of nothing, as Kun proved against United and they fight and give 100% every time they play for City.
"I would like to be a top scorer like Carlos and Sergio but we all have our jobs to do - I'm happy with three goals this season and it could have been five had the post not got in the way!"
The winner of City's clash with Chelsea will meet either Millwall or Wigan in the final of the competition.
