Cleverley: Man Utd pals Rooney, Van Persie make me look good

Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley admits teammates Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie make him look good.

Cleverley is quick to point out his job is being made a whole lot easier by the class acts United possess in attack.

He said: "It's great to have all that talent in front of me because you know that if you can play that killer pass, it's likely to get finished off.

"It gives us a lot of confidence and when we're playing in those tight games that could go either way, we know we've got the firepower and the players to create that bit of magic to win us games that maybe we might have drawn."
