Man Utd boss Ferguson included Cleverley in Arsenal warm-up

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson hasn't forgotten winger Tom Cleverley.

On-loan at Watford, Cleverley was invited by Fergie to travel with the Red Devils to Sunday's 3-1 win at Arsenal.

And it clearly inspired him as he helped Watford put Sheffield United to the sword.

Hornets boss Malky Mackay said: "It was a great thing for Alex to do. He went down to the Emirates and spent five or 10 minutes with them before kick-off.

"And that touch of class clearly rubbed off."

Cleverley displayed courage as he risked a clattering by Sheffield United stopper Mark Bunn to bravely nod the Hornets' first six minutes before the break.

Mackay added: "Tom knew he was going to get absolutely smashed by their keeper but he still went to head it."
