Celtic: Fans happy with Neil Lennon’s continued use of two strikers against Hearts

Celtic: Fans happy with Neil Lennon’s continued use of two strikers against Hearts - Celtic

Celtic opened a 10-point gap at the top of the Premiership on Wednesday night and, even before their match kicked off, plenty of Hoops fans were in a good mood after seeing the team news when published by @CelticFC on Twitter.

Manager Neil Lennon again started with two strikers for a league fixture (Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths), having done so for most of their top-flight matches in 2020 so far following a deviation from 4-2-3-1, a formation to which he returned in Sunday’s Scottish Cup win at Clyde.

Lennon went for a slight variance on his recently favoured 3-5-2 by moving midfielder Olivier Ntcham into a more advanced role to make a 3-4-1-2, a move that paid off with the Frenchman scoring the opening goal in their 5-0 thrashing of Hearts at Parkhead.

Despite the scoreline, and despite all five goals being scored by different players, neither Edouard nor Griffiths got in on the act, the former being kept scoreless for only the second time in his last six league games.

These Celtic fans on Twitter were happy to see Lennon once more going with two strikers for the game against Hearts:
