Manchester United moved level on points with Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table on Friday night.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men overcame an in-form Aston Villa side 2-1 at Old Trafford, to solidify their position in the title race.
However, despite United being firmly in contention for their first title post-Sir Alex Ferguson, the January window is expected to be a quiet one at Old Trafford.
Speaking last year, Solskjaer said: "It's hard to predict how other teams (will act) and how the financial situation is.
"If teams need to sell or if they've got money to buy…
"I don't predict a lot of ins and outs, to be fair.
"The world, financially, and in football, has changed as well also."
An area that has been cited as one to potentially look to upgrade is at right-back. Aaron Wan-Bissaka is a solid hand, but similarly to Alex Telles' arrival on the opposite flank a new addition would add extra strength in depth.
A number of names have been linked, including the likes of Kieran Tripper, Lucas Vasquez and Norwich City's Max Aarons.
Solskjaer left himself short in the position after allowing Diogo Dalot to join AC Milan in the summer window.
The Portuguese has found opportunities difficult to come by for the Rossoneri, although he has impressed in their Europa League campaign.
And Dalot has admitted that he wants to return to his parent club and show his real abilities, and possibly offer that extra precaution that Solskjaer craves.

Speaking to Record (via Sport Witness), the 21-year-old was asked if him ambition was to return to England forge a career with the Red Devils.
“Of course, the feeling is a little deeper, more because I didn’t have the time I liked physically," he said. "I spent great moments at United. I played very important games for me and the team.
“I left with a bit of a bittersweet feeling for not being physically available for all those games I lost due to injury. But it is what it is. I wouldn’t change anything because what I learned was very important for my future and how I am now. I don’t regret it or look back with disappointment.”
Dalot joined the Italian giants on a season-long loan deal, with no purchase clause inserted into the transfer.
