Tom Cleverley welcomed senior pair Wayne Rooney and Darren Fletcher back for Manchester United’s Capital One Cup win over Newcastle United.

All three had an influence on the 2-1 win.

"It was fantastic to have both Wazza [Wayne Rooney] and Fletch [Darren Fletcher] back," he told MUTV. "Fletch is a big-game player who can bring positive things to any squad in the world and Wazza came back and put in a great performance.

"We've been a bit unlucky with injuries but that's what we've got a squad for – as players get injured, others are coming back. There is good competition in the squad at the moment and we're winning games so it's all good."
