The Argentina star bagged two more goals in Wednesday night's win over Stoke to take his overall tally to 15, 13 of which have come during City's surge to the Premier League summit.
However, Mancini doesn't want the 23-year-old former Atletico Madrid man to stop now. With Manchester United just two points adrift of their neighbours heading into the Christmas programme, Mancini wants Aguero to lead City's striking team to even greater achievements. "
I hope Sergio can score 30 goals. It is the same for Edin (Dzeko) and Mario (Balotelli). If they scored 50 goals between them it would be good for us," said Mancini, whose team play Roy Hodgson's West Brom today.
"I always enjoy it at West Brom because the crowd is so passionate. They are a good team, who have just won their last two games away from him. If we want to win there we need to play very well."
