Consecutive games against the same team are dangerous, even when you win the first convincingly. We only need to think back to the 7-0 drubbing we dished out to St Mirren in 2009. The Paisley team were so far outclassed they should not have been on the same field as Celtic that day, but a week later they knocked us out of the Scottish Cup.
Hibs were awful in defence on Wednesday and should have done better with the chances they had going forward, but they will have a point to prove this afternoon and can be relied on to fight “tooth and nail” to puncture Celtic’s title credentials.
If James Forrest is able to float into a central position Celtic should have enough, but they don’t have many game-winners like Forrest.
