The Bhoys’ previous game saw them come from 1-0 down to beat Hearts 4-1 at Parkhead on Saturday.
After the visitors took an early lead through Ellis Simms, Hoops duo Kyogo Furuhashi and Daizen Maeda put the home side in front by half-time. In the second half, goals from Matt O’Riley and Giorgos Giakoumakis secured the three points for the title-chasing Bhoys.
Looking ahead to their next game, it seems as though the league leaders have been handed a big boost which could vastly improve their chances of sealing another victory, one which would confirm them as champions of Scotland.
Speaking in his latest press conference ahead of Wednesday’s clash, Hoops manager Ange Postecoglou informed the media about his squad’s current fitness situation after their previous match.
He said: “Everyone’s okay after the weekend so we don’t expect any sort of change from the ones available.”
Taking this into account, it will surely please a lot of Celtic fans to hear that there have been no injury issues from the last game which could impact Wednesday’s showdown at Tannadice.
The three previous league meetings between Celtic and Dundee United this season have seen Postecoglou’s side take seven out of a possible nine points. Their first league clash back in September ended with a 1-1 draw, followed by two victories for the Bhoys in December and January.
The Tangerines are heading into tomorrow’s match in a mixed run of form, having won four, drawn seven and lost four of their 15 previous league games.
This shows how hard it could be for Celtic to know how exactly to approach this game. However, with the title in sight, the only thing that Postecoglou will want from his players is another win.
Looking back at their victory over Hearts, despite conceding an early goal, the Bhoys still managed to assert their dominance by ending the game with 64% possession and 21 shots at goal, with 12 on target.
Having no additional injury issues from the weekend will surely help the 56-year-old, who could count upon largely the same starting XI from last Saturday in order to preserve continuity and rhythm with the title in sight.
