Manchester United's Tom Cleverley: 'I've been average this season'

Tom Cleverley admits that he has been "average" for Manchester United so far this season.

Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley has admitted that he needs to step up his game following an "average" start to his season at Old Trafford.

The England international has come under criticism from Red Devils supporters for being below par on a number of occasions for manager David Moyes, but the 24-year-old intends to put that right.

"At the moment, I feel like I've got more to give," Cleverley told the United Review. "I've had a few average games, a few more than I would prefer, but I felt this time last year was when I hit my best form of the season, when we were playing every few days.

"I'm the type of player who prefers that and, if I can get into a rhythm, then hopefully I can add more than just appearances to my record, I can also add some stand-out performances."

United are currently ninth in the Premier League table after 15 games.
