Start me up: Cleverley is keen to make his mark

Tom Cleverley is desperate for the chance to sink Manchester City this weekend.

Manchester United youngster Cleverley is on loan at Wigan for the season and the 21-year-old midfielder is keeping his fingers crossed for a start when City visit the DW Stadium on Sunday.

Cleverley, who made his first appearance for the Latics when coming on as a substitute in the draw with Sunderland, said: 'Obviously I'd love to get one over United's rivals on Sunday, if selected.

'It's games like this that I came to Wigan to play, and hopefully we can do something against them.

'I only got 20 minutes against Sunderland but it was nice to get out there on the pitch. Obviously the circumstances were difficult, 1-0 down and they were just sitting in there. But we equalised and could even have won it at the end.

'My focus now is getting a good week of training under my belt and proving to the gaffer I deserve a place on the pitch against City.'
