Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that the club won't be making any signings when the winter transfer window opens next month. The Spanish coach effectively quashed all of the rumours that have been doing the rounds over the past few weeks, linking numerous players to City.

City will be hoping to reclaim top spot in the table after last week's defeat to Chelsea meant they slipped to second. Liverpool who moved into pole position, take on Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday.
