It is Celtic’s first home game in three weeks this Saturday as they continue on their quest for title number eight.
This weekend sees Steve Clarke’s Kilmarnock travel to the east end of Glasgow, as the Ayrshire side remain in the running for a third-place finish despite defeat at home at the hands of Aberdeen last weekend.
A frustrating 0-0 draw against Hibernian at Easter Road was the third goalless draw in six league games since Neil Lennon’s return.
The Hoops remain nine points clear at the top of the table, but fans will want as many points on the board as possible with four games left to play.
Dedryck Boyata remains out with a hamstring injury, while Ryan Christie recovers from that brutal knock at Hampden Park. Kieran Tierney is set to see a specialist as a pelvic injury continues to affect his performance.
Here is our predicted XI for Saturday’s clash.
GK: Scott Bain
Standard procedure for the Scottish international, who will remain in between the sticks.
RB: Mikael Lustig
Likely to remain favoured at right-back by Lennon against Kilmarnock.
CB: Filip Benkovic
Could come into the side as a rotational option in place of Jozo Simunovic.
CB: Kristoffer Ajer
Should be the main man in the centre of the defence on Saturday.
LB: Jonny Hayes
With Tierney likely to be out and Emilio Izaguirre showing his age, Hayes could slot in at left-back once more. He has done well recently to earn a spot in the team.
CM: Scott Brown
The captain will hopefully inspire the team to bounce back to winning ways.
CM: Callum McGregor
Could slot back into that deep-lying role which is arguably where he is most effective.
RW: James Forrest
If he is on his game, Forrest can provide a pacey option down the right-hand side.
CAM: Tom Rogic
Could be on the team sheet from the start if he is fit. Everyone knows the quality he can bring to the table if given the chance.
LW: Scott Sinclair
If Hayes is required in defence, then Sinclair could come back into play on the left wing.
ST: Odsonne Edouard
Will hopefully be able to bounce back after failing to find the back of the net last weekend.
