Lionel Messi has become Barcelona's all-time top scorer at the age of just 24 after scoring a hat-trick against Granada in La Liga last night.

The Argentina international has now scored a staggering 234 goals for the Catalans, beating the previous record held by Cesar Rodriguez.

Elsewhere last night, Blackburn beat Sunderland 2-0 at Ewood Park, with goals from Junior Hoilett and Yakubu sending them six points clear of danger.

In other news, Arsene Wenger has revealed Jack Wilshere is on course to return before the end of the season - but refused to name a date.
