In the battle for the runners-up spot in the league, Aberdeen will host St Johnstone at Pittodrie Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Just like leaders Celtic, the Dons are yet to taste defeat in the league this season. However, they bowed out to Motherwell in the League Cup last week. Following a couple of draws, Derek McInnes’ side returned to the winning ways with a 1-0 league win against the same opponent last Sunday.
The Dons have 17 points from their opening seven games and they are currently second in the table.
Three points behind the Dons, the Saints sit in the third spot in the table. The visitors have faced only one league defeat this season and that was at Dundee almost a fortnight ago.
Saints have won four out of their seven games, but their best performance this season was the 1-1 draw at Celtic. This means that Tommy Wright’s side are the only team to take points off Celtic in the league this season.
Last season, both sides played each other four times in the league. Both sides won one game each and a couple of fixtures ended in goalless draws.
