Saracens have named their team that will take on Sale Sharks at the AJ Bell Stadium on Friday evening in the Aviva Premiership.

Liam Williams continues his return from injury and starts on the wing, as does Chris Wyles. Meanwhile, Richard Barrington retains his starting place following a man-of-the-match performance against Newcastle last weekend.

George Kruis returns to the squad for the game and will start alongside 19-year-old Nick Isiekwe in the second-row. Chris Tolofua keeps his place at hooker and Juan Figallo starts at tighthead.

Alex Lozowski and Ben Spencer are paired together in the half-back positions while Calum Clark, Schalk Burger and Jackson Wray make up the back row. Brad Barritt skippers the side in the centres alongside Marcelo Bosch as Alex Goode starts at full-back.
