Dion Dublin does not believe anybody, football player or not, deserves the reported figure Lionel Messi would be paid should he move to Manchester City next summer. Reports this week have suggested Pep Guardiola could be brought in to replace Manuel Pellegrini as City manager at the end of the season, and he would be joined by his former Barcelona midfielder on a massive weekly wage. Elsewhere it's a big weekend for Jamie Vardy as he looks to replicate the performance he put in against Manchester United last season. We hear from the Leicester City striker and his manager Claudio Ranieri. Are they genuine title contenders? Alan Shearer goes behind enemy lines to interview the manager of Sunderland, and Sam Allardyce has some choice words for youngsters coming through Premier League academies. There's a Beast question that's as tricky as ever, and Micah Richards has a positive, and defiant, message for Aston Villa supporters.
