Celtic return to league action on Sunday against Dundee, looking to get back on track after drawing 0-0 with Aberdeen.
The Hoops failed to do much of anything against the Dons, and that must change against Dundee if the Hoops are to maintain their lead at the top of the league table.
Here are three things Neil Lennon must consider doing against Dundee to get the Hoops the three points required:
REPLACE JEREMY TOLJAN WITH MIKAEL LUSTIG
Toljan failed to impress against Aberdeen, in what looked like his audition to replace Mikael Lustig under Neil Lennon. As a result, Lustig should return to the side against Dundee. He hasn’t had the best of seasons so far. But his experience should see him get the nod ahead of Toljan, who hasn’t impressed in his most recent appearances for the Hoops.
BREAK-UP SCOTT BROWN AND NIR BITTON PARTNERSHIP
The duo of Scott Brown and Nir Bitton in the middle of the park failed completely against Dundee. They slowed the game down to a crawl, and stifled many attacking opportunities. Injuries in the middle of the park are an issue. However, that should not stop Lennon from breaking-up the partnership and bringing another midfielder – perhaps Ewan Henderson – into the side.
PLAY ODSONNE EDOUARD FROM THE START
The decision not to start Odsonne Edouard against Aberdeen was very odd. He is Celtic’s best striker, and it doesn’t make any sense to keep him out of the side. Hopefully the interim Hoops boss will have learned his lesson and return Edouard to the starting line-up. He is more than capable of getting the goals to get the Hoops the three points.
