Manchester United

Although Mauricio Pochettino acknowledges that “that is not an excuse,” he attributes Chelsea’s 2-1 loss to Manchester United on his players’ weariness.

Mauricio Pochettino blamed player tiredness for Chelsea’s 2-1 loss to Manchester United, but he made it clear that there is no justification for not matching the Red Devils’ ferocity and intensity.

Cole Palmer’s strike in the first half gave the visitors some optimism, even though Scott McTominay’s two goals sealed United’s triumph at Old Trafford.

Pochettino gave no indication that he was concerned by the loss in his post-game news conference, pointing to a number of factors that affected the team’s performance.

Chelsea has struggled with a long injury list and important players serving suspensions. Conor Gallagher, for example, was sent off in the previous game against Brighton and missed the game.

Pochettino emphasized how playing with ten men against Brighton and the short turnaround time for the trip to Manchester could have taken a toll on the team’s stamina.
