Celtic take on Dundee Utd this afternoon and it’s absolutely imperative the bhoys win.

There away slip ups mean there’s no room for error at the moment and with a depleted squad, Ange will need to work miracles.

We know what Dundee Utd are going to turn up and play like. Frustrate and defend and hope to hit on the break when Celtic commit too many men forward.

Ross County we’re frustrating Celtic at home two weeks ago before Carter-Vickers long range shot found the back of the net.

We don’t have our captain, or Kyogo, or Giakoumakis – James Forrest is still out and Christopher Jullien is still on the sidelines.

That’s a lot of players to be missing.

Here’s how we think Ange will set up this afternoon against Dundee Utd.

We’d be surprised if McCarthy played three games on the bounce – that’s why we’re predicting a Soro inclusion. However, if the manager think James can handle it then we’re happy if the Irish international gets the nod. It would be his starting XI debut.

Juranovic at right back with Scales on the left seems plausible. Liam got some game time against Raith Rovers on Thursday night and looked fit.

As long as Jota hasn’t suffered any long term effects from the knock he got against Raith, we expect the front line to stay the same with very limited options open to the manager.

Let’s hope we can get the three points
