Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky says Theo Walcott must not think about his critics.

Walcott struck a hat-trick in their 6-0 victory over Blackpool.

Arsenal team-mate and fellow midfielder Rosicky witnessed first hand Walcott demonstrate his true potential on Saturday and believes he did so because he played with a smile.

"I just hope he will not play football to answer his critics or something," Rosicky told talkSPORT.

"I think the best way is to go out and enjoy his football - that's always what worked for me.

"Let's go out and enjoy the game and I think he enjoyed it [against Blackpool]."
