Saracens have failed to win any of their last three matches in the Aviva Premiership, and should they fail to beat Sale Sharks at Allianz Park on Saturday, it will be the first time that they have gone four successive games in the tournament without a victory since 2006. However, although they will once again be decimated by international demands, due to the ongoing 6-Nations tournament, they will feel a certain comfort from the match being played at a venue where they are now unbeaten in the last 17 matches played at the venue in all competitions.

The Northampton Saints being the last visitors to Allianz Park to leave with a victory to their credit, and that was in the Premiership back in March of last year. The Sharks looked to be staring a relegation battle in the face after a woeful run of results in the latter part of 2016, but they have enjoyed a run of five straight wins in all tournaments, including their last two Premiership fixtures. The Sharks now have a massive 16 point advantage over the bottom side Bristol, and their immediate Premiership future appears assured. Saracens have only lost once to Sale in the last eleven games between the clubs, 10-14 at AJ Bell Stadium in the Premiership two years ago.

Defending Aviva Premiership Champions, Saracens, begin their defence of their title, in front of their own supporters on Saturday at the Allianz Park, against visitors from the North West, Sale Sharks. Although Allianz has become a formidable fortress since Saracens moved into the purpose built venue, they were beaten in their most recent outing at the ground, when Exeter Chiefs were the visitors at the back end of last season's Premiership regular season. Should Sale also manage to triumph at the venue on Saturday, it will be the first time ever, that Sarries have lost successive games at the Stadium.

The home side has certainly been more badly affected by international calls on their squad, due to the World Cup, than the Sharks, and although both sides will hope to have their England contingents back and available at the weekend, Saracens will still be without key players, representing other nations. The key to the outcome may well prove to be the mercurial Sale fly-half, Danny Cipriani, who was controversially omitted from England's World Cup squad. If "Cips" is on top of his game, he may inspire the Sale Sharks to repeat their win against the Champions at the AJ Bell in February, and give his club a rare opening weekend Premiership success.

Sale Sharks will have their work cut out to emerge from Allianz Park on Saturday with anything to show for their trip to last season's Premiership runners-up, Saracens. Sarries are one of only two clubs in the Premiership who have 100% winning records after just three rounds of this season's tournament. Bath being the other. They are also defending a home record that has seen them lose just one regular season Premiership fixture at the Allianz, since they moved to their new home; a loss to London Irish in Round 13 last season. The Sale Sharks finally opened their season's account last weekend, which also ended a four game losing streak, when they thumped newly promoted London Welsh at the AJ Bell Stadium by 46-8. Although the week before, in their only away game so far, they had every chance of beating Gloucester at Kingsholm, having dominated the first half, and opened up what should have been a winning lead, only to suffer a second half collapse leading to a 34-27 defeat.

Saracens haven't been beaten by the Sharks since going down 28-22 in January 2011 at Edgeley Park, while they have only lost one home fixture against Saturday's opponents, when the Sharks won 40-32 at Vicarage Road, Watford.

Saracens continue to sit astride the domestic game in England, having lost just once in the Aviva Premiership this season, a thumping 20-41 loss at Franklin's Gardens to Northampton on 26 October. A Sale Sharks victory on Saturday would be a major upset, not only if based on the current league positions, but also when Saracens home record is taken into consideration. They have yet to lose a regular season match at their new ground, Allianz Park, the record reading played nine, won nine. The only loss being to Northampton Saints being in last season's semi-final play-off.

Sale Sharks recorded a 26-10 home win last Friday against the bottom placed, and winless, Worcester Warriors. The first win for Sale in the Premiership since round 5. While they have just a single away victory in the Aviva to their name since last February, by 22-16 against Gloucester at Kingsholm. It appears unlikely that Sale Sharks will add to their single Premiership win over Saracens since 2008, on Saturday. That victory came in January 2011 by 28-22, at Sale's previous home, Edgeley Park in Stockport, while they have to go back to September 2005 to find their only Premiership victory on Saracen's soil, at Vicarage Road Watford.
