Cleverley felt Frank Lampard handled his shot in the second-half inside the Blues penalty area.
"It was obviously in the heat of the moment, but I think it is one of them; you are disappointed that you didn't get it but if it was given against you, you would be just as disappointed. I thought his hands were up and it could have been given - you've seen them given. But you get some and others you don't," he told MUTV.
