Jones produced a classy finish for the 1-0 win.
"He took it like a striker," Cleverley told MUTV. "I think he scored a similar one a few weeks ago. He's a bit of a fox in the box from corners and he did well for us both defensively and in midfield.
"We had been putting pressure on and I felt like a goal was coming. In the last two or three games, we've realised how important it is to get the first goal and that's arguably more important in the Champions League."
