Celtic travel to Tynecastle this weekend for the first time this season as they look to extend their lead at the top of the Premiership table.

Neil Lennon’s side coasted to a 2-0 win over Hearts’ city rivals Hibs on Sunday; goals from striker Odsonne Edouard and young full-back Jeremie Frimpong sealed all three points for the champions.

The sides have met just once so far this season, where the Hoops eased by the Jambos by a scoreline of 3-1; two own goals (that were harshly taken off of Vakoun Bayo) either side of Callum McGregor’s strike sealed the win in front of a packed home crowd.  

Hearts have endured a torrid start to their 2019/20 campaign, having won just two of their 17 fixtures. They currently sit second-bottom of the table, just in front of St. Johnstone on goal difference.

New boss Daniel Stendel didn’t get off to the best of starts in his new managerial role as his side were beaten 1-0 at home by St. Johnstone last weekend.

Neil Lennon has confirmed that winger Mohamed Elyounoussi is out of this fixture, though hopes to have key man Ryan Christie available after he missed last Sunday’s win. Jonny Hayes is doubtful while Hatem Abd Elhamed and Jozo Simunovic remain sidelined.

Hearts are without the injured Steven Naismith, while fellow striker Uche Ikpeazu is suspended.

Here is our predicted Celtic XI.
