The Premier League’s early pacesetters Manchester City take on the Scottish Premier League champions, Celtic on Wednesday going in search of a tenth straight win under new boss Pep Guardiola.
City overcame Swansea 3-1 at the weekend to secure a sixth straight league win, and have already opened up a four-point gap over their nearest rivals, Tottenham, in the race for the title.
They’ve also started confidently in Europe, comfortably dispatching Steaua Bucharest 6-0 on aggregate in the qualifying play-off before brushing aside Borussia Monchengladbach 4-0 in their first group game.
The same cannot be said of Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic though, who were thumped 7-0 by Guardiola’s former employers Barcelona in game week one.
The former Liverpool manager’s men are unbeaten in the league so far, but know that they face a tough test on Wednesday at Celtic Park.
Guardiola will be without the influential Kevin De Bruyne, who limped off with a hamstring injury against Swansea on Saturday and, with a key game against Tottenham next weekend, the former Bayern Munich manager may look to make some changes for tomorrow’s clash.
