Sale Sharks have made four changes to their line-up for the visit of Saracens on Saturday.

Mark Cueto, Danny Cipriani, Kearnan Myall and Richie Vernon will make their first starts of the season following the disappointing opening-day rout against Exeter.

There is also a place for the fit-again Alasdair Dickinson on the bench, however Marc Jones, Cillian Willis and Andy Powell are ruled out through injury.

Saracens have named an unchanged starting XV following last weekend's 40-3 season opening victory over London Irish.

The only changes in McCall's 23-man squad come on the bench where Alistair Hargreaves and Owen Farrell have been named.

Both shaken off minor knocks to be included, with second-row Hargreaves set to make his Aviva Premiership debut should he take to the field.

The other change sees Jared Saunders named among the replacement props on the bench.

Sale: 15 Rob Miller, 14 Will Addison, 13 Johnny Leota, 12 Sam Tuitupou, 11 Mark Cueto, 10 Danny Cipriani, 9 Dwayne Peel, 8 Richie Vernon, 7 David Seymour (capt), 6 James Gaskell, 5 Kearnan Myall, 4 Richie Gray, 3 Vadim Cobilas, 2 Joe Ward, 1 Eifion Lewis-Roberts.
