The England midfielder was in excellent form throughout and scored the opening goal with a composed finish past Jussi Jaaskelainen in the Hammers' net.
Although he fired over the bar when trying to double his tally, Cleverley shone in the middle of the park and fully deserved to pick up the lion's share of the vote.
Skipper Nemanja Vidic, who became more dominant in defence as the game wore on, edged Danny Welbeck into third place with Jonny Evans finishing fourth despite also picking up plenty of votes.
