Craig Gordon remain the undisputed first choice under Brendan Rodgers. He will be in goal and guide his defense line to prevent any error and will also aim to keep a clean sheet which is a likely possibility.

Defenders

The ever present Kerian Tierney and Mikeal Lustig have been doing a decent job at full back and will keep their place in the lineup. The pairing of Boyata and Bitton at centre back should be able to hold any attacking threat by St Johnstone.

Midfielders

In recent time, Brendan Rodgers have resulted to using two holding midfielders or double pivot. It has been a success and he have the duo of Stuart Armstrong and Scott Brown will place the role in this encounter. This help cushions the effect of his attacking players who will most likely not be able to track back. They retain possession this way.

An attacking midfield of Scott Sinclair, Conor McGregor and James Forrest will provide the fluidity and attacking pace for the team.

Striker

A point man in the form of Moussa Dembele will be leading the team. The French man form has been an impressive one. This is a 4-2-3-1 formation that Rodgers can use and in no time will be running all over St Johnstone.
