Dream 11 Picks
Apart from leaving everything up to god and praying for not being battered on the day, the home side will also ardently wish for a wordclass showing from their shot stopper. With clear issues in the docket, the team brought on Danny Rogers at the end of the first half to take over the mantle of acting as the watchdog of the side’s goal.
And we managed to give a good account of himself with his endeavours manging to keep his side in the game for a large amount of time to see us opt for the player as our custodian today.
The league’s most exquisite defence, Celtic’s defence is more than just names who can defend. The forgone 5-1 win saw the side’s backline heavily involved in the team’s attacking soirees with a triad of names finding themselves involved in the team’s goal scoring travails.
And this entire trivalent was too good to let out of our grasp for the imminent scrimmage. Our picks begin with Jeremie Frimpong who scored for the club the last time around with Grey Taylor who got the two assists in the clash coming in as his partner.
CB Christopher Jullien registered an assist as well for the club in that encounter to see him make an advent into our team as well.
James Forrest had a hand to play as well in his side’s clobbering of Hamilton with an assist in the 5-1 battering to make him Celtic’s first pick in this slot. We have the enigmatic partnership of Ryan Christie and Mohamed Elyounoussi and pair up with him for the upcoming contest, two names who will make life extremely precarious for an already flummoxing defence.
The home side will meanwhile see us indulge in the services of both the CDMs. Aaron Tshibola and Alan Power will be overpowered infront of a side which has typically ended up routing sides, a tenacious and resilient duo capable of stringing his way the tackles and blocks today.
Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard needed absolutely no time to get off the blocks for the side this season. The striker struck a hattrick on his first appearance of the season itself, a performance which alluded towards his flair and calibre.
Chris Burke will be our pick from Kilmarnock after he scored for the side in the team’s last fixture to keep them within sights of foraging their way a draw on the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His vibrant hattrick from the last match sees Edouard captain our side while Forrest is the vice-captain.
