Fulham defender Dan Burn admits featuring in their draw at Manchester United is "amazing".

Burn's first trip to Old Trafford is part of a steep learning curve for the 21-year-old, who joined Fulham in 2011, since when he has had spells on loan at Yeovil and Birmingham.

He was recalled from a season-long loan at St Andrews in January, and new Cottagers chief Rene Meulensteen has shown plenty of faith in the north-easterner, on Sunday selecting him ahead of Brede Hangeland.

"I have always had a plan in my head that I wanted to play in the Premier League at a certain point but I'm way ahead of that," said Burn.

"By rights, I should still be at Birmingham, so, to get this chance, and receive the backing of the manager and the lads is amazing."
