Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini refused to single out Joe Hart despite a below-par display against Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
The England number one appeared at fault in letting Franck Ribery's shot fire past him for Bayern's opener on seven minutes in the Champions League clash at the Etihad Stadium.
Former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben then beat Hart at his near post for the German side's third after the break.
The shaky performance will once again put the former Shrewsbury stopper in the spotlight after a number of high-profile errors last year.
With England's vital World Cup qualifying double-header with Poland and Montenegro coming up later this month, some have suggested Hart should be left out of the Three Lions side until he re-discovers his form.
When quizzed on the 26-year-old's performance, boss Pellegrini acknowledged the errors but was reluctant to single him out for criticism.
"Of course I am worried about the mistakes but I think that it was not an easy game, we played against a very strong team," he said.
"Our performance was not the way we were playing. It is important to think about the future and what are the solutions."
