Hearts head into this fixture on the back of a 1-0 defeat to St. Mirren, but they remain third in the league standings, just three points behind their opponents. The Jam Tarts will be without the services of midfielder Andy Halliday, who is suspended after picking up a red card in the previous match.
Meanwhile, Celtic will be looking to build on their 2-1 victory over St. Johnstone last weekend. They sit in second place, one point behind Rangers, who have played one game less. However, they will be without the influential Ryan Christie, who is serving a suspension following his red card against Aberdeen.
Hearts are expected to stick with a 3-4-3 formation, with Liam Boyce leading the line. Winger Josh Ginnelly is likely to start on the right, while Steven Naismith could return to the side on the left. Craig Gordon is expected to start in goal, with Michael Smith, John Souttar, and Craig Halkett forming the back three.
Celtic, on the other hand, are likely to line up in a 4-3-3 formation. With Christie unavailable, the onus will be on Odsonne Edouard to provide the goals. Albian Ajeti could start on the left, while Mohamed Elyounoussi could feature on the right. Scott Brown, Callum McGregor, and David Turnbull are expected to form the midfield trio, while Scott Bain will start in goal.
Both teams are in good form and will be keen to take all three points. However, the absence of Ryan Christie could prove to be a significant blow for Celtic. Hearts will be buoyed by their home advantage and will be determined to bounce back from their recent defeat. The game is likely to be closely contested, but Hearts could edge it with a 2-1 victory.
