Karl Henry admits that a diet of chocolate and takeways is what makes him run an average of 7.29 miles a match for Wolves.

The midfielder is close to clocking up 100 miles for Mick McCarthy's men this season and he claims that healthy eating is bottom of his list.

The 28-year-old told The Sun: "I'd love to say it's down to early nights, organic food and healthy eating. But, to be honest, I'd be talking rubbish.

"I'm not one for 'early to bed' and my eating habits aren't particularly great.

"I love my takeaways and I'm hooked on Guylian chocolate.

"I think it's just down to willpower. I work hard and get around the pitch, that's my role in the team and I'm enthusiastic about it."

Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey has the highest average with an impressive 7.33 miles a match, while only Newcastle pair Yohan Cabaye and Ryan Taylor plus Chelsea's Ashley Cole and Charlie Adam of Liverpool have run further than Henry in the Premier League this season.

And Henry said: "I'm there to do the dirty jobs no one else wants to do.

"I tidy up around the pitch when we're short-handed. But supporters want to see great goals and wonderful attacking play, so it can be a thankless task at times."
