Martinez, who managed Cleverley during the 23-year-old's spell at the Latics, believes that the Manchester United midfielder has the confidence to move on from his display in the disappointing draw at Wembley.
"Tom will want to be better in the next game," Martinez said. "You judge players not by the chances they miss but whether they are prepared to go back into those situations to get a scoring opportunity again.
"I guarantee Tom will get into those positions time and time again.
"He's a tremendous example of the future of English football."
Martinez takes his side to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
