Tom gets clever in front of goal

Published Add your comment

Tom Cleverley has admitted his lack of goals for Manchester United was starting to get to him.

The 23-year-old managed to find the net during loan spells with Leicester, Watford and Wigan but for United he was just drawing a blank. Even Sir Alex Ferguson felt compelled to give him a half-time dressing down at Old Trafford on Wednesday after the midfielder had somehow failed to convert a golden chance set up for him by Javier Hernandez.

The England man clearly took the hint and stroked a shot into the corner to hand his team a 2-1 Capital One Cup win over Newcastle. He said: "It has been playing on my mind a little bit. I have always scored goals when I have gone on loan, so it was bugging me that I had not been doing it for my club or my country."
