Deadly predator Sergio Aguero loves his trips to Norfolk but Norwich City must find a way to keep the Manchester City superstar quiet at Carrow Road to boost their Premier League survival bid.

The Argentine hitman has scored on all three of his previous visits, most recently in a 3-0 FA Cup third round cruise back in January.

The 27-year-old is also chasing a number of goalscoring milestones ahead of his latest outing in these parts, with the prolific striker needing two goals to break into the Citizens' all-time top ten.

Aguero, however, is warning Alex Neil's squad his main aim is to inflict more misery on the Canaries this weekend with Manuel Pellegrini's squad still in the title hunt.

'It would be a major achievement if I can enter the top ten,' said Aguero, speaking to his club's official site. 'But I'd rather focus on my next goal rather than the ones I've scored so far and the ones I might score in the future.

'Breaking a record would very nice for sure – they are meant to be broken in the first place. But if I do it, I hope it doesn't last for many years, because that would mean that the club can keep growing thanks to the efforts of other prolific players.'

Aguero also needs just six more goals to join an elite group of players to have scored 100 in the Premier League.
