Both City and the Gunners could leapfrog leaders Liverpool at the Premier League 2 Division 1 summit with a win when the two sides meet in Whetstone on Monday (7pm GMT kick-off).

The Reds have suffered four defeats in their past five league fixtures, opening the door for the following pack to mount title bids of their own in the final weeks of the 2017/18 season. 

Speaking ahead of the match, which will be live on LCFC TV from 6:45pm GMT, Petty said: “We’re going to go back, back to basics. We’re going to strip it right back to basics.
