Why Chelsea Lost to 2-1 to Man Utd – Mauricio Pochettino: Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Chelsea, has acknowledged that his squad wasn’t at its best during Wednesday night’s 2-1 loss to Manchester United.
Pochettino stated that the Red Devils’ intensity was too much for the Blues to reciprocate.
Cole Palmer‘s strike was followed by two goals by Scott McTominay to give United the maximum number of points. Chelsea now sits 10th in the Premier League standings after the outcome, having won just five of their first 15 games. How to tell if you’re dehydrated (Finger Test)
“The feeling is that they started better than us, showing more energy than us. We couldn’t match the energy. I think they were better than us and there’s nothing I can say.
“The second half we started well but then we conceded and again I think we missed a little bit the energy to be more aggressive. We had some chances but not enough to get back in the game again. But overall my feeling is that they were better than us and deserved the three points,” Pochettino said.
