Hearts have won 5 of the games and drawn just the game against Livingston. The most amazing thing about this team is their strong defense, they have conceded only 2 goals in the Premiership this season.

They are now 5 points ahead of the second placed team Rangers. Rangers stretch further their superb run in all competitions as they defeated Motherwell 4-2 in the league Cup on Wednesday. They will look forward to continue with this superb form.

Meanwhile St Johnstone have recorded and average performance in the 6 games played so far. They have won twice, drawn twice and lost twice, giving them 8 points and they sit 8th in the table.

They were humiliated away from home last week as they lost 5-1 to Rangers. This was a game they were purely outclassed in all measures, they had overall possession of 39%. St Johnstone only managed 3 shots on target from 11 against their opponents 1 shots on target from 21 shots.

St Johnstone started conceding from the 9th minute but most of the match goals came in the 2nd half. They are also out if the league Cup as they lost to Celtic in the quarter-finals Wednesday.

Hearts vs St Johnstone: Head to Head

Hearts are unbeaten in their last 4 meetings, having won 3 of the games and drawn once. They have kept clean sheets against St Johnstone in the last 4 games and failed to score once.

There is no much difference in their 50 previous meetings as Hearts have won 17 drawn 17 and lost 16 to St Johnstone.

Hearts vs St Johnstone: Prediction

With the superb form Hearts has ongoing, they are huge favorites in this game. Also considering St Johnstone’s last week’s humiliating performance, we don’t think they can stop Hearts.

Hearts has a very good defense, and we can’t see St Johnstone that has average of 1 goal per game break this defense. We must be backing the hosts Hearts to win this game to Nil aka without conceding a goal.
