During the first meeting between the two clubs at Upton Park, which ended in a 2-2 draw, Man United at times struggled to cope with the threat posed by the Hammers in the air.
However, this time around England midfielder Cleverley wants to see his side play their natural passing game.
"We'll try and get the passing game going and make a game that will suit us more than them," Cleverley told United Review. "As long as we take the initiative and start the game well, I'm sure we can get a good rhythm going."
Cleverley opened the scoring during the original tie.
