After Walcott's England heroics this week, Ince said: "Theo did well, it was a great hat-trick - he was outstanding. I hope he needs a rest and that Arsene Wenger might leave him out!
"The kid is lightning but we have a very good left-back in Stephen. It's a good challenge.
"It's a case of winning your one-on-one battles, hopefully Stevie can do that. But it isn't just about Theo Walcott.
"And it's good to see teams play with wingers because there aren't many out there now."
