Mauricio Pochettino said his Chelsea players need to "grow up" as a team after they were beaten 1-0 at Stamford Bridge by Aston Villa to fall to their third loss of the season.The game turned with the sending-off of Malo Gusto after 58 minutes when the score was still 0-0. His challenge on Lucas Digne was late and caught the Villa defender on the ankle, and after a pitchside VAR review referee Jarred Gillett upgraded the initial yellow card to a red for dangerous play.Pochettino refused to blame Gusto's challenge for the defeat and instead suggested his squad needs to "grow up".
