Manchester United star Tom Cleverley has admitted to poor form during this season's campaign. 

The England star has been one of many under performing players within the squad during David Moyes debut season at Old Trafford, and, as reported in the Metro, has revealed that he is under no illusions that he needs to step up his game.

"At the moment, I feel like I’ve got more to give," the midfielder said.

"I’ve had a few average games, a few more than I would prefer."

The 24-year-old has been marked for a potential sale in the January transfer window as part of the overhaul expected to be conducted by Moyes as he looks to re-establish United's dominance in the division.

However Cleverley believes that he has more to offer the team and said working hard to ensure that his contributions improve.

"But I felt this time last year was when I hit my best form of the season, when we were playing every few days," he continued.

"I’m the type of player who prefers that and, if I can get into a rhythm, then hopefully I can add more than just appearances to my record, I can also add some stand-out performances.

"I’m definitely developing the defensive side of my game and tactically the manager is teaching me a lot of things.

"Maybe the creative side of my game can improve a little bit too but I realise that’s not my only job in the team and sometimes I’ve got to sacrifice that part."

The United man's next chance to convince Moyes that he should be kept at United past January will come when his side face Aston Villa away this weekend.

Moyes will know that his team must take victory to have any hope of keeping themselves in with a shout of competing for the title, but will have to be wary when taking on Paul Lambert's side as a defeat will demoralise them further.
