Tom Cleverley: Limped off during Manchester United's home defeat to Cluj

The midfielder was forced off just before half-time during Manchester United's 1-0 loss.

Cleverley's injury will be assessed on Thursday but Sir Alex Ferguson is not expecting a positive outcome.

"Tom felt his calf a little bit," said Ferguson. "We will assess it in the morning but it is not good news."

Ferguson has also ruled skipper Nemanja Vidic out of the visit to Manchester City, but central defensive colleague Jonny Evans could be available.

However, Japan midfielder Shinji Kagawa seems certain to miss out.

"Kagawa is a fantastic player," said Ferguson. "He is back doing some running but I don't know if he will make Sunday.

"At least he is training. Hopefully he will join in the football part on Monday."

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.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
