Sarries go Exeter in confident mood
Exeter coach Rob Baxter believes his player have learnt from recent defeats as they bid to end the unbeaten run of Saracens on Sunday.
Saracens have not lost to Exeter since their first meeting in October 2010, and kept their unbeaten start to the new season going with a 9-9 draw with Leicester Tigers at Wembley last week.
Exeter have not made the same impact, but they have done well in front of their own fans, having won three out of four. It is on the road that they have let things slip, but hopes are high that they can get something out of Sunday's fixture.
Coach Rob Baxter said: "Every game of Premiership rugby is tough and at the end of the day we came away with something from both of our defeats so far."
Injuries mean that Chiefs will be without England flanker Tom Johnson. Craig Mitchell is also missing from their pack, so Carl Rimmer and James Phillips are in the squad.
Sarries scrum half Neil de Kock will make his 150th appearance for Saracens in the round three clash while Kelly Brown will captain the side.
In other team news, Jamie George makes his first start of the season at hooker as does Duncan Taylor who is named at outside centre. Alistair Hargreaves starts ahead of Steve Borthwick who is on the bench.
