Celtic predicted XI v Livingston: Edouard and Christie start

Celtic play Livingston for the second time in a few days tonight and the Hoops will hope to get back to winning ways.

Neil Lennon’s men were held to a goalless draw at Celtic Park on Saturday and their hopes of 10 in a row are slowing evaporating.

The team are in desperate need of a lift from somewhere and the boss will go in search of a winning formula.

Ahead of tonight’s game, we looked at who could start for Celtic during tonight’s must-win contest.

In goal and back four

Celtic went with Conor Hazard in goal on Saturday and after keeping a clean sheet he could start once again.

Jeremie Frimpong started in a more advanced role at the weekend but he could return to his familiar right-back berth tonight.

Nir Bitton should get the nod to start but Kristoffer Ajer could return alongside him.

 

At left-back, expect Diego Laxalt to continue.

Midfield

Lennon could choose to mix things up tonight and that could see Ryan Christie recalled to the starting eleven.

The 25-year-old has scored four goals and claimed 11 assists for the Hoops this season but has missed the last two games.

With Christie returning to the team and Callum McGregor alongside him, Lennon could choose to revert to a diamond formation.

Ismaila Soro is a natural inclusion at the back with David Turnbull slotting in at the top.

In attack

Odsonne Edouard should return to the team this evening and will look to add to his 11 goals this season.

Alongside him, Leigh Griffiths should be handed a chance as a man for the big occasion.

The Hoops star has scored five goals in 11 outings this season and will be desperate to earn a run of games.

Here is how tonight’s team could line-up:

Hazard; Frimpong; Bitton, Ajer, Laxalt; Soro; Christie, McGregor; Turbull; Edouard, Griffiths
