Celtic: Fans agree with tweet about Olivier Ntcham’s effect on other players

Celtic: Fans agree with tweet about Olivier Ntcham’s effect on other players - Celtic

Ryan Christie and Olivier Ntcham were the men on target for Celtic on Wednesday night as they stretched their lead at the top of the Premiership to five points.

The midfielders scored in the Hoops’ 2-0 win away to Hearts at Tynecastle, although a tweet by @celticrumours before the game suggested that Christie’s effect becomes diluted when Ntcham is in the side.

James Forrest started on the left against Hearts, with Mohamed Elyounoussi and Mikey Johnston both unable to shake off recent fitness concerns (as per thecelticstar.com), which meant that his usual right winger role was taken by Christie, who is chiefly a central attacking midfielder.

Ntcham scored despite dropping back into a defensive midfield role from the attacking midfield position in which he has recently been deployed, while Christie maintained his record of scoring in every game that he has played on the right flank so far this season.

While the positional changes ultimately worked out well for Celtic at Tynecastle, these Hoops fans on Twitter agreed with the opinion put out by @celticrumours:

Do you think Ntcham sometimes have a detrimental effect on Christie and Forrest in Celtic’s line-up? Join in the discussion by commenting below!
