The Gunners' midfielder says his Czech team-mate has been 'absolutely amazing' and that he can learn a lot from the way he 'makes things happen'

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has revealed he learns from all his Arsenal team-mates, but has highlighted Tomas Rosicky as a major influence on his game.

Rosicky has been integral to Arsenal's recent return to form and Oxlade-Chamberlain says that he has also helped him develop his game.

He told the club's official website: "I look at Theo [Walcott], Gervinho and Robin [van Persie] as the three main attacking players and more recently I have been watching Tomas Rosicky because he's been outstanding.

“Robin has taken most of the headlines and rightfully so with all of his fantastic goals but quietly I think Tomas has been playing absolutely amazing.

“I started my career as a central midfielder and the way that he gets the ball in midfield, turns and runs at people just makes things happen."

The Gunners' midfielder has received many plaudits for the composure he has shown starring in some of Arsenal's biggest matches of the season.

The 18-year-old midfielder says he doesn't get nervous on the pitch, regardless of who he is playing against because of the players around him.

“I've played so many games of football now and even though it is at a higher level, at the end of the day football is football. You are just playing with better players," he continued.

“Playing in a team like Arsenal helps massively having all of these players around you giving you advice. When they are playing well, you feel comfortable and it helps you to play well too."
