Manchester City manager Manuel Pellgrini has fired an ominous warning that he feels that there is plenty more to come from star striker Sergio Aguero.

The 26-year-old Argentina frontman has already scored 11 times for the Citizens this season, including goals in each of his last five games, a run which also saw him net four times against Spurs last weekend.

However, with Aguero having been hit by injury problems as the season got underway and still not back to peak fitness, Pellegrini has warned the rest of the Premier League that his player can only get better.

He told reporters ahead of Saturday lunchtime showdown with West Ham at Upton Park: "I don't think it's the best I've seen from him. I know him a lot of years before he arrived in England when he played back in Spain.

"And in Manchester City's 2011-12 when they won the title he was a very important player. Last year, he was very important when he was not injured.

"After that it was difficult for him, but that's normal. I was always sure he would return to normal performance. He has a lot more years to improve. I think he can get even better."

Aguero can be backed at 10/3 to score the first goal of the game against the Hammers and is 13/8 to be the first goalscorer for City, while the South American is available at 4/5 to score at any time.

The game on Saturday has come a little too soon for City loan midfielder Frank Lampard, who has not recovered in time from a thigh injury picked up against Tottenham Hotspur, but who should be back in training next week.

Meanwhile, the Hammers are expected to be boosted by the returns of James Tomkins and Cheikhou Kouyate after thigh and groin problems respectively.
