Guardiola's men now top the standings on goal difference, just above local rivals Manchester United, having made an impressive start to the season.
"It is good to win the Premier League Manager of the Month but all credit to the ones on the pitch doing their job, the players".
"He is much, much better but still injured", Guardiola said.
It was the second time Guardiola has won the award since he took charge of City in the summer of 2016.
The City boss says his priority is to bring in a left-back after Benjamin Mendy suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury that is set to keep him out for six months.
The City manager spoke about Mendy's influence after refusing to comment on the possibility of signing Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez in January.
"The transfer window is closed now". We are going to see at the last training session.
He said: "The big problem we have is Mendy - six months out. Unfortunately it was long open, but now it is closed", Guardiola told reporters on Friday. We will see about January. It's a big problem. "He'll notice how he feels and when he'll be able".
"We'll suffer even though we have the exceptional Fabian, Danilo, and even Zinchenko".
Looking ahead to the visit of Stoke, Guardiola said: "They are defensively well organised with quality up front in (Xherdan) Shaqiri, Jese, and (Eric Maxim) Choupo-Moting".
Unsent text is last will says Australian court
The unsent text message was never sent but had important information that convinced the court that the man was using it as a will. In 2006, the law in Queensland was changed to allow less formal types of documents to be considered as a will.
