The Cottagers travel to Old Trafford at the weekend in the fourth round of the competition and Cleverley intends to be all over the opposition.

"At home, if we've got teams under a lot of pressure, they can struggle if we don't give them a second to breathe," said the 23-year-old England international, quoted in The Sun.

"We've played some really good stuff - fast, one-touch football."

Asked how important the competition is to United, Cleverley said: "It means a lot. Our last FA Cup win was in 2004 and it's a trophy I want.

"Playing at Wembley is one of the best feelings of your career. I've been lucky enough to have played there five or six times but I always want more.

"We've got a few players who haven't won anything in this country yet - like me. So anything we're involved in, I want to win.

"At the start of the season, the first thing I wanted was to be injury-free. I want to make as many appearances as I can and help the team win some silverware.

"We've got the experience of last year and we know how hurt we were. There's a great team spirit now. There was last year, too, but there's a good feeling around the place, which is fantastic.

"To me, it just feels like a group of winners."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
