For me, Tom Cleverley was the man of the match despite impressive performances from Rafael, Rooney and van Persie.
Last night was Cleverley’s Champions League debut. An away game in Romania is far from easy, especially when your team goes down 1-0 early on, but he didn’t seem phased by the occasion at all.
He was assured in his short passing game and was everywhere for us on the pitch. One particular moment that epitomised his performance was when he sloppily lost the ball but immediately chased back and won possession again.
Considering how lackadaisical our midfield has been, Tom is pretty much playing himself into the side. Surely it is going to be difficult for Sir Alex Ferguson to leave him out this weekend against Newcastle.
