Hoyte: On A Par With Utd & Chelsea
Young Arsenal defender Justin Hoyte feels Arsenal are 'on a par' with both Chelsea & Manchester United and that the mighty Gunners will be battling on all fronts next season.
The England under 21's defender has come into his own this season, holding down a regular spot at various positions in defence, and has looked great after his loan at Sunderland last season.
Hoyte believes Arsene's young Gooners have drawn or lost many games this season that should have easily been won (Boro, Everton, Newcastle, Man City & West Ham anyone?) and that Arsenal are in no way lagging behind the big two.
"We feel we are on par with them already, it`s just the way the games have gone. Although we have played to the best of our ability we have just lost games we shouldn`t have done at the end of the day. But we feel we are on par with the likes of Chelsea and United.' said Hoyte
"Obviously we have to do our best for the remainder of this season then we will look forward to building for next year. '
"All the players are full of confidence about next season and will be looking to win everything in Europe and in our domestic competitions."
Hoyte has impressed me this season and is making all the right noises.
