Motherwell were left frustrated after their previous match before the international break when they were defeated 2-0 by Hearts, with both goals taking place in the opening 25 minutes.
The Steelmen were unable to force their way back into the fixture, even though they had 20 shots throughout the game.
Graham Alexander’s team slipped away from those above them in the league because of the loss, which was only their second of the season in the Scottish Premiership, but they will be keen to start climbing back up the table this weekend.
A win has the chance to raise Motherwell into third place, but they will be wary that a defeat would allow Celtic to leapfrog them and potentially push them down as low as sixth.
The recent loss marked the first time that the Steelmen have not scored in a game this season across all competitions, and with the Hoops being one of the strongest defensive teams in the league, the game will provide a real test to the attackers.
Motherwell have not fared well in recent times against their opponents, losing three times against them last season, but now would be the perfect time to end that run.
Celtic have been a mixed bag so far in the 2021-22 campaign, and that is why they are in sixth place, having lost three games already in the league, which is only two fewer than they suffered throughout all of last season.

The club have only managed two victories in their previous five matches in all competitions, but one of those did come in their most recent outing against Aberdeen.
It was a crucial three points against a club who were close to them in the league, with Kyogo Furuhashi getting himself on the scoresheet, as Jota finished things off for a 2-1 win.
Offensively, the Hoops remain one of the strongest outfits as nobody has scored more, but they have not managed to secure consecutive wins since August, which will be a cause for concern
