Saracens won on their two most recent visits to Franklin’s Gardens and have the best record of any visiting side to Northampton, gaining seven Premiership wins there over the years.
Saracens’ only defeat in their last seven Premiership matches was 16-33 to London Irish at Twickenham in round one. Sarries have won their last three home matches.
Table topping Northampton Saints have already made their best ever start to a Premiership season, whilst the only two occasions that they have won their opening three matches of a league campaign was when they went on to have perfect seasons, winning 18 out of 18 in Division Two in 1995/96 and winning 26 from 26 in National One in 2007/08.
Saracens and Northampton met on five separate occasions in all competitions last season with Sarries having the slight edge by three wins to two.
