Heart of Midlothian will be out to extend their unbeaten start to the 2018-19 Scottish Premiership season with victory at home to St. Johnstone on Saturday.

The Jam Tarts continue to lead the way in Scotland, having recorded five wins from six matches this season. Following five straight wins, Hearts were held to a goalless draw by Livingston last time out, but still sit five points clear atop the standings.

Rangers, who sit in second spot, are away to Livingston on Sunday following their emphatic 5-1 win over St. Johnstone at Ibrox last weekend.

Steven Gerrard’s men continue to impress as they aim to break Celtic’s stranglehold in Glasgow.

Celtic are under pressure in the league for the first time in recent memory following an uncharacteristically slow start to the campaign.

The Hoops have already dropped eight points, with two defeats and a draw from six games highlighting their struggles thus far.

Kilmarnock netted a late winner to condemn Celtic to a 2-1 defeat last time out.

Moreover, Dundee will be desperate to break their duck when they travel to Hamilton this weekend. The Dee have conceded 12 times in six straight defeats.
