'Are you Wilshere in disguise?' The chant is not familiar at Fratton Park at the moment, but is likely to become one when teenage defender Jack Whatmough steps onto the pitch.

The 19-year-old centre back has caused an internet storm because of his likeness to Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere.

Whatmough has faced quite a bit of stick on Twitter for his appearance, with a number of users claiming it is really Wilshere in a terrible Boris Johnson wig.

The Pompey man even moved to deny the claims, posting: "why is everyone saying I look like Jack Wilshere with a blonde wig. look nothing alike."

No one was having it though, with some pointing out that the pair had never been seen together in the same room.

Whatmough broke into the first-team in the second half of last season, going on to play 12 matches in League Two. He has started both of Pompey's matches this season.
