Arsene Wenger has warned Arsenal to expect a footballing test when miracle-worker Mick McCarthy brings his battling Wolves side to Emirates Stadium..

The Gunners had an extra 24 hours to prepare for the game following the decision to put the fixture back from Boxing Day because of industrial action by some London Underground staff.

"Mick McCarthy is doing miracles at Wolves," Wenger said in his programme notes. "He is always ready for a fight, never gives up, keeps his steadiness and mental strength, never shows any strain."
