Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley admits he copped the hairdryer from Sir Alex Ferguson at halftime of their Capital One Cup win over Newcastle United. Cleverley's excellent 58th-minute strike proved to be the decisive goal in an entertaining tie at Old Trafford as Sir Alex's men ran out 2-1 winners.

"It's been playing on my mind a little bit because I've always scored goals when I've gone out on loan but I've not been doing it for my club and country," he told MUTV.

"The gaffer gave me a bit [of stick] at half-time for missing the chance in the first half so it was nice to stroke that one in. Hopefully that sets me off on a run now."
