Continuing his progression through the Manchester United ranks, Tom Cleverley is living up to his biggest expectations yet this season.
With a club of United’s magnitude, it’s only understandable that some live to thrive amongst the pressure while others sink under the responsibilities placed upon them.
Cleverley has spent the last 12 years of his life around Old Trafford and has steadily seen his involvement with the club increase.
Following an injury-ravaged 2011-12 campaign, it’s arguably the most important season of the 23-year-old’s career as he seeks to establish himself as a player of Manchester United quality, despite having shown glimpses of such skill already.
Roughly a quarter of the way through the current term, we can reflect on the performances shown by Cleverley already, and see how his journey to fulfillment is coming along.
