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."

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
