Help me to fix this sentence because it doesn't sound good to me:

The one is wrong is you!

I believe there is redundancy in that sentence, but I can't explain. Probably the "is"? A part of me thinks that I should use "are", but then I remember a phrase like:

It's you!

However, even if that's correct, it still sounds mouthful.

As @Jeffrey has showed in a comment, the correct sentence would be:

The one who is wrong is you!

You can also use that instead of who if you must, but who is preferable.

You could also express the same meaning by using an it-cleft sentence:

It is you that/who is wrong!
