Why Chelsea lost 4-1 to Newcastle – Pochettino

 Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has reflected on their 4-1 defeat at Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday.

The hosts took the lead through Alexander Isak, but Raheem Sterling equalised for the Blues with a sublime free-kick.

However, Pochettino’s men fell apart in the second half, with goals from Jamal Lascelles, Joelinton, and Anthony Gordon sealing three points for the Magpies.

Pochettino, speaking to Premier League Productions after the match, said: “We cannot complain about the result; we did not read the game from the beginning.

“We did not play how we should play; we showed a lack of intensity and energy. Even after we scored at 1-1, it was a chance for us to force them to play deep, but it was so easy for Newcastle. That is why I am so upset with the performance.”
