​Former Chelsea coach and pundit Ray Wilkins has slammed David Luiz after the Chelsea centre-back recklessly lunged at Arsenal's Sead Kolasinac and got himself sent off in yesterday's London derby.

The 30-year-old overran the ball under pressure from Alexis Sanchez and when Kolasinac got to the ball first, Luiz lunged in with his studs up and clearly caught the Bosnia international.

The Brazilian's challenge has been widely condemned, with Kolasinac lucky to escape unhurt, and now, Wilkins has claimed that Luiz 'wet himself' before launching into the tackle.

Speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, as reported by ​talkSPORT, Wilkins said, "It was an atrocious tackle. He either wants to hurt Kolasinac, or he’s afraid. I’ll go for the latter."

“He saw him coming towards him and thought, ‘wow, this fella is a giant’ and he basically wet himself."

“Kolasinac went to the floor, his boots never came off the ground, he just went for the ball. If Luiz had done that there would have been nothing wrong. It’s on the halfway line for goodness sake," Wilkins added.

Despite the Brazilian's red card, ten men Chelsea managed to hold on to a point but they will now lose their star defender for three domestic games, including the top of the table clash against Manchester City later this month.
