Cleverley believes the memory of that 6-1 annihilation by Manchester City in October will ensure it does not happen.
"It is good for the city that both teams are doing fantastically well," he said. "It does increase the pressure and does seem to be the only thing anyone is talking about right now.
"It has been massively competitive all season and even though we won there in the FA Cup, we still remember the 6-1.
"Hopefully we can win at their place and secure the title."
