The trilogy with Motherwell comes to an end at Celtic Park as Celtic aim to go seven points clear at the top of the league.

Team Selection: Moussa Dembele is still out - but might be back for Anderlecht on Tuesday - and Patrick Roberts is out until the new year after pulling his hamstring against Motherwell on Wednesday night.

Perhaps with the Anderlecht game looming, there may be changes and the likes of Erik Sviatchenko and Jonny Hayes could be involved. I think if Motherwell hadn’t irked Celtic with their statement last night then we would have made more than a few changes.

Now I think it’ll be mostly a full-strength side, to hopefully give Motherwell a pasting.

Previous Meetings: Good decision, Brother Collum!

Prediction: Motherwell seem to have upset Celtic. That won’t end well for them. A convincing Celtic win.
