Tom Cleverley: First goal in 12 months

The England midfielder rounded off the scoring just after the break, after Danny Welbeck had struck twice in the first half.

It was exactly a year to the day that Cleverley had last scored for United and he was pleased to hit the back of the net again.

"It plays on your mind when you're a midfielder that you have to score a few goals," Cleverley told Sky Sports.

"We played as a three which gave us more licence. A year of not scoring came out in my celebration.

"I think I played quite well and kept the ball and kept us ticking at a high tempo. I want to kick on from here now and so does the team.

"Hopefully this is the start of a good run."

Welbeck, who scored the other two goals, was equally pleased to have scored his first league goals since the opening day of the season.

"It was a good all-round team performance and everyone got together and played good football and got the goals," said Welbeck.

"Good strikers finish and that's where I want to play - up top, but I'm happy to play in the team whether on the left or right."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
