Chopper says Chelsea must stop Arsenal star Wilshere

Chelsea players are being urged to put the lockdown on Arsenal star Jack Wilshere today.

Wilshere, 21, poses the biggest threat to Rafa Benitez's outfit today.

And no-nonsense Blues ­legend Ron "Chopper" Harris says Wilshere can be tamed by tough-tackling similar to that which earned Kompany a rescinded red card when Manchester City beat Arsenal 2-0 last week.

Former Chelsea enforcer Harris, 68, told the Daily Star Sunday: "When I was playing, if I had made a tackle like the one Kompany did on Wilshere, I would have been proud of myself. I would have given myself ten out of ten for that one.

"They say you can't show your studs but when you slide in like that you have to show your studs. That doesn't mean it was a leg-breaker!"
