Urby Emanuelson was happy with his Fulham debut in defeat to Manchester United.

On-loan AC Milan midfielder Emanuelson, who made his Fulham bow in the game as a 68th-minute substitute, was impressed by what he saw from his new teammates.

“It wasn’t an easy game to make my debut in,” he told the official website. “It was a tough match, but in the second half we really fought well and it looked like we would get at least a point.

“We fought as a team. You saw in the second half that we were getting stronger and stronger. We were unlucky in the box as well. But with the strikers they have, they can always score goals.

“We can be happy with the way we played but, of course, the result was not what we wanted.”
