Justin Hoyte admits he faces a make-or-break season at Arsenal.

"This season is a very important season for me," the England U21 fullback told arsenal.com. "I did not feature much last season which was a big disappointment for me. So obviously I just want to play as many games as I can and hopefully I'll do that.

"But I know it is very tough. Bac (Bacary Sagna) has come in and done fantastically well. He is a great player. I just have to be very focussed in training and everything I do.

"Then when I do get a chance I have to show the manager I am as good as Bac so I keep my place."
