The former Southampton winger also insists there is are no individual frustrations down to the need for players' workloads to be managed.
"It's not about you. You can't go into games wondering if you're starting or not because you're head can go down if you're not," he said.
"You just have to be prepared to help the team whichever way and every time. We're all team players first.
"I don't think we have had to change mentality much because the number of games we have means you have to be realistic that no-one is going to play every game because your legs will give up.
"We need rest, we need to be at our strongest every time and that's why the manager is making the changes from game to game."
