Manchester United fullback Alexander Buttner was happy to see action in their FA Cup defeat to Swansea City.

On another desperate day for United, Buttner was one of the few who emerged with any credit.

In the first-half particularly, he exploited the space down United's left flank, delivered a superb cross for Javier Hernandez's equaliser and created danger for Swansea on numerous other occasions.

"The players know that I will always try to cross the ball, which is why Javier got his goal," said Buttner.

"It was nice to play. I want to play every game. But it is hard because we lost. If we win, the feeling is different."
