Injuries won't force Manchester City to sign in January

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed the club has no plans to strengthen in January despite his side's injury list. 

City have had a number of fitness problems so far this campaign with Rodri and Oleksandr Zincheko becoming the latest casualties this week. The left-back is set to be out for up to six weeks after undergoing a minor knee surgery while Rodri is likely to be on the sidelines for a month. The duo joins defender Aymeric Laporte and Leroy Sane who are out with injuries. 

"Some are muscular, others in the past were ligaments - (there are) not many we don't have. We are in a bad period in that sense," said Guardiola

"When I'm thinking after the international break - November, December, January, February - yes, I'm a little bit concerned because in a few positions we don't have enough players."

"I think we are not going to buy. The club didn't introduce me to the players they thought could help us, so without that, it's not going to happen. Our need is not just for six months, it's for a long time and the important players will not be sold. We are going to stay all the season, I think, with all the players we have right now."
