"It was not just about them [Mkhitaryan and Lingard, who were subbed at half time].
"Other players were also not playing really well and obviously, as well as my decision, I don't like to go in the direction of singling out players.
"Let's say our team didn't play well in the first-half and their responsibilities are my responsibilities."
