Neil Lennon’s side have won their last four league games that sees them at the summit, with a superior goal difference separating them from their arch-rivals Rangers. The Hoops defeated Motherwell 2-0 in the last game and will hope to retain the top spot at the weekend.

Meanwhile, Livingston will look to beat Celtic again after their 2-0 home success last month.

Mohamed Elyounoussi injured his foot while on national duty and is expected to miss the Livingston game. Hatem Abd Elhamed has been ruled out for six weeks with a groin injury but Leigh Griffiths could be in contention to face Livingston after bagging a brace for Celtic reserve squad against Stenhousemuir.

Meanwhile, Jozo Simunovic has stepped up his comeback from injury as he aims to get back into action.

Probable Celtic XI

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.

Christopher Jullien (CB)

Jullien has established himself as a first-team regular, forging a solid central defensive partnership with Ajer.

Kristoffer Ajer (CB)

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

Jonny Hayes (LB)

With Bolingoli-Mbombo blowing hot and cold, Hayes could be handed another start at left-back.

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.
