Dundee United Tannadice

Here is how Dundee United and Celtic will line up for this afternoon’s clash:

Dundee United starting XI: Cierzniak, McGowan, Fojut, Morris, Dixon, Souttar, Rankin, Telfer, Spittal, Erskine, Muirhead

Dundee United subs: Szromnik, Dillon, Spark, Smith, Coote, Anier, Connolly

Celtic starting XI: Gordon, Matthews, Denayer, van Dijk, Izaguirre, Brown, Bitton, Commons, Johansen, Armstrong, Griffiths

Celtic subs: Zaluska, Ambrose, Guidetti, Scepovic, Mackay-Steven, Forrest, Tierney

Dundee United and Celtic go head-to-head once again in their last of their many meetings this season.

The Bhoys have got the better of their opponents in the Scottish Cup and the Scottish League Cup so far and they recently won 3-0 in the league, but manager Ronny Deila will be taking nothing for granted today.

Celtic are currently five points clear at the top of the table while United are fifth, although they have two games in hand over the side directly above them.

Expect the hosts to want to get revenge on Celtic, who themselves are closing in on a domestic double.

The fact they so recently saw their treble hopes go up in smoke means they should be focused to fight for all three points this afternoon.

Former United players Stuart Armstrong and Gary Mackay-Steven also get the chance to play on a ground they know extremely well.
