Tom Cleverley: Challenging Aaron Ramsey at Old Trafford on Sunday

United made a somewhat stuttering start to their first Premier League campaign under new manager David Moyes.

However, they have improved of late and results very much went their way at the weekend, as they rose to fifth, five points behind the Gunners, while potential title rivals such as Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City dropped points.

Cleverley said: "Seeing the weekend's results, we knew it was an extra-important three points.

"We didn't want the league leaders to go 11 points ahead of us, now we are back in the mix.

"We are ahead of City and not far behind Chelsea, and we have also played some very tough games out of our opening 11.

"I am sure we can now get a run together and get right up to the top again."

Newcastle's win at Spurs and Sunderland's defeat of Manchester City have continued this season's run of upset results, but Cleverley thinks the nature of the Premier League renders such apparent surprises inevitable.

"It is what everyone predicted at the start of the season," he said.

"Everyone is improving and that makes for a really competitive campaign as a whole."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
