Stoke winger Assaidi: Fulham's Burn urged me to swap flanks

Stoke City winger Oussama Assaidi admits he had a running conversation with Fulham defender Dan Burn during Saturday's 4-1 win.

Assaidi revealed Burn actually asked him to swap flanks during the rout!

"Yes, I felt very sorry for their defender," said the 25-year-old to The Sentinel.

"He was a nice guy, the first right-back. He told me to change sides, he didn't want to play against me anymore.

"I really enjoyed it. That's how I want to play. I want to take defenders on."
