Formation: 4-2-3-1

Fraser Forster (GK)

Forster has been brilliant since arriving on a season-long loan from Southampton in the summer. He’ll keep his place between the sticks.

Jeremie Frimpong (RB)

Frimpong has impressed for the Hoops and should start at right-back against Livingston.

Kristoffer Ajer (CB)

Ajer is one of the first names on the team sheet and will aim to keep the Livingston attackers at bay.

Scott Brown (CM)

A leader on and off the pitch, Brown will look to take control of the game from the first minute on Saturday.

Callum McGregor (CM)

McGregor has been a consistent performer for the Hoops over the last two seasons. He’ll partner Brown in the middle of the park.

James Forrest (RW)

Forrest has impressed since the start of the season and will look to cause all kinds of problems for the Livingston defenders.

Ryan Christie (CAM)

Christie has nailed down his place in Lennon’s starting XI with a series of eye-catching displays. He should start in the No.10 role against Livingston.

Lewis Morgan (LW)

Even if he’s only scored one goal and managed two assists, Lewis Morgan is still clearly valued by Lennon and could start on the left flank at the weekend.
