Ange Postecoglou will welcome Tom Rogic and Nir Bitton back into the squad following international duty and suspension respectively. Rogic, who has been away with Australia, could find it difficult getting back in the starting XI after Matt O'Riley's impact in wins over Hearts and Rangers. Kyogo Furuhashi and David Turnbull will likely remain out, while Yosuke Ideguchi is a doubt due to an ankle knock.
Motherwell are unbeaten in their last six at Fir Park, since losing 6-1 at home to Rangers. Manager Alexander is wary of Celtic’s qualities and admitted he wasn't surprised by their performance in the win over Rangers.
"Celtic have been performing like that for a good few months to be honest with their intensity, their passing and how they play," he said.
"What I see from Celtic is that they respect all the opponents. I think they go into every game to play their way, they have done that since the manager came in.”
