Man City manager Pep Guardiola will have been delighted to have key players return to training on Monday. John Stones and Kevin De Bruyne both took part in the session along with Sergio Aguero - the Argentina coach had claimed the forward was carrying a problem during the international fixtures. Benjamin Mendy also trained meaning the Frenchman could be fit to face Crystal Palace at the weekend. City have the chance to gain ground on Liverpool in the Premier League title race given Jurgen Klopp has never won at Old Trafford and faces Manchester United on Sunday. Guardiola will be pleased to see winger Riyad Mahrez continue his recent form, scoring twice and assisting once for Algeria last night.
On the transfer front, MEN Sport confirmed that City aren't interested in signing a defender in the January transfer window. Both Ruben Dias and Kalidou Koulibaly have been linked with a switch to the Etihad Stadium but reports are wide of the mark. City aren't currently entertaining the idea of adding a defender to their squad. Keep up to date with the latest City news in our live blog.
