Focused Saracens can stretch away from Gloucester at Allianz Park
Cherry & Whites' attacking tactics are more likely to be affected by conditions
BT Sport 1, 3pm Sunday
Gloucester have made their best start to a Premiership season for 11 years with two cosy home successes and a 31-31 draw at West Country rivals Bath but it is hard to see the Cherry & Whites avoiding defeat by a double-figure margin at Saracens.
The champions thumped Gloucester 62-12 at Allianz Park in May and have taken their winning league run to ten games this term.
Eight more of these victories have come with the four-try bonus point including their 44-23 London triumph over Bristol in round two.
Gloucester beat Bristol 35-13 at Kingsholm last week but they trailed 13-3 at half-time and Sarries' set-piece and collective breakdown work is a class above the Bears'.
The Cherry & Whites' attacking tactics are more likely to be affected by forecast wind and rain too.
All Sarries' recent success has been built on the fact that they are happy to keep the ball tight for multiple phases and make the scoreboard tick over when the opposition discipline wavers.
The boots of Owen Farrell, Alex Lozowski, Ben Spencer and Richard Wigglesworth can take Saracens out to a victory by 13 points or more even if the home tries do not flow.
