Johan Mjallby: Celtic assistant is demanding focus for the visit of Hearts

Mjallby is wary of over-confidence in the Celtic squad following their recent 7-0 thrashing of Hearts at Tynecastle in the Scottish Cup.

"It's not easy for them as they are a very young team and confidence-wise they have been struggling a wee bit lately," Mjallby said.

"But the main thing is not for us to go in and think it's going to be 7-0 all over again. That's the worrying thing and something we need to press home, as we can't go into the game thinking it will be easy.

"It's never easy to win football games. We really need to be spot on, try to play with the tempo with which we have done lately away from home, make sure our passing is right and our full-backs are going forward.

"Goals change games, so obviously if we are solid at the back then we can push forward and focus on going ahead attacking-wise.

"We will really have to work hard and make sure we earn the right to play our football.

"We always respect everyone who comes here to play us. But we know we have good enough players, and if they play well enough, we should get the three points."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
