Tom Cleverley strike against Newcastle United voted best of the bunch

“Of course I meant it” Tom Cleverley on Twitter

Tom Cleverley’s curled effort against Newcastle United at St James Park has been voted goal of the month by Manchester United fans.

It was Tom’s second goal against Newcastle United within the space of two weeks, the first two goals of his Manchester United career, and it capped off a fine 3-0 victory away at St James’ Park. Who cares if he meant it or not, it went in.

Tom promised that his first goal in a United shirt in the Capital One Cup would lead to more but I doubt he thought it would be as good as this peach of a goal. He has been steadily improving with every game he plays this season and is really forcing his way into the starting line-up.

He’ll be in action for England again this week in a friendly against Sweden and hopefully he will return injury free for the games against Norwich and Galatasaray.
