After eight games in the Scottish Premiership the defending champions already find themselves in the top spot heading into Saturday's fixture. However, the Hoops are struggling for consistency as of late as they have only won twice in their previous six matches in all competitions as Ange Postecoglou's team are out of form. Their latest defeat took place in midweek against RB Leipzig, as Celtic conceded two goals in the space of 10 minutes from Andre Silva which ruled out the earlier equaliser that Jota had scored. Despite letting in three times in the Champions League, Joe Hart has been strong defensively for the Hoops as Celtic have only conceded four times in the league to this point.

A brace from Danny Armstrong was too much for St Johnstone to deal with, as Theo Blair's 91st-minute goal proved to be nothing more than a consolation. The Saints have won just a single game at McDiarmid Park so far in this campaign, which is something to improve if they want to avoid being dragged towards the relegation zone. However, the last two games that St Johnstone have played at home have seen them keep clean sheets, and against the strongest attacking team in the league that could prove to be vital.
Despite making a mistake in midweek there is no doubt that Hart will retain his place in goal for Celtic, with his experience and skill being vital to how the team have played so far this season. The Hoops used the exact same starting lineup for their previous two games, and that is something that could end up happening again, despite the Champions League loss. However, Giorgos Giakoumakis is now fit again, and while he only managed a place on the bench against RB Leipzig he could end up pushing into the team this weekend.
