Tom Cleverley expects Manchester United to bounce back despite problems
Wednesday 14 December 2011
Tom Cleverley believes Manchester rivals City and United are both capable of bouncing back from recent disappointments.
United bowed out of the Champions League last week, like City - who also lost their unbeaten Barclays Premier League record with a 2-1 defeat at Chelsea on Monday night.
However, United midfielder Cleverley thinks both teams can put the setbacks behind them on Sunday, with City at home to Arsenal and United travelling to QPR.
He told Sky Sports News: "(Monday) was their (City's) first slip-up of the season...but we were always confident we could catch them. It's going to be an interesting weekend."
Cleverley, who is still facing more time on the sidelines with an ankle injury which has kept him out since October, has confidence in the United squad.
He added: "We've got a great team spirit so if anyone can bounce back from disappointment it would be our squad.
"We've had a lot of tough games in a short period of time and we've been knocked out of two tournaments - but we are still well placed in the league."
