Mauricio Pochettino has blamed Chelsea's 2-1 defeat by Manchester United on his players being fatigued, but admits that is 'not an excuse' for failing to 'match the Red Devils' energy and aggression'.

After Robert Sanchez expertly kept out a penalty from Bruno Fernandes, Scott McTominay struck twice to seal victory for Erik ten Hag's side at Old Trafford. 

Despite Cole Palmer pulling one back just before half time for the visitors, the west London outfit suffered their sixth defeat of the season, but Pochettino, speaking in his post-match press conference said he was not worried about the defeat.    

'I'm not worried because there's too many circumstances which need to explain why we didn't perform,' he said to Sky Sports.

The Blues have had to battle an extensive injury list so far this season and have also seen key players be ruled out serving suspensions, with Conor Gallagher missing today's game after being sent off during their win against Brighton at the weekend. 

And the Argentine manager claimed that having to play with 10 men during that match for so long, accompanied by their quick turn around and trip to Manchester may have drained the energy levels of his side.  

'To play with Brighton with one less for so long may have affected the energy, and we need to recover too many players from injury, to have different options and be more competitive,' he said.
