Chiefs hoping to extend their winning run against the Warriors this afternoon

Exeter v Worcester live stream: How to watch the Premiership match online from anywhere

Gallagher Premiership leaders Exeter will be looking to make it five straight league wins when they host Worcester at Sandy Park this afternoon (kick-off 3pm).

A late try from Harry Williams was decisive in the Chiefs’ 24-20 win over the Warriors at Sixways last November and Rob Baxter’s side will be buoyed by their midweek victory away at Bristol with a much-changed team.

Worcester also received a confidence boost in beating Harlequins 29-14 – a result that ended a run of eight successive Premiership defeats – but they have won just once away from home all season.

Both clubs have changed their entire starting XVs for this match given the short turnaround. Engand wing Jack Nowell returns to the Exeter team for the first time since the league restarted while back-row Matt Cox will make his 100th appearance for Worcester if he comes off the bench.

Exeter: Stuart Hogg; Jack Nowell, Henry Slade, Ian Whitten, Alex Cuthbert; Joe Simmonds (captain), Jack Maunder; Ben Moon, Luke Cowan-Dickie, Harry Williams, Jonny Gray, Jonny Hill, Dave Ewers, Jacques Vermeulen, Sam Simmonds.

Replacements: Jack Innard, Billy Keast, Marcus Street, Will Witty, Richard Capstick, Sam Hidalgo-Clyne, Harvey Skinner, Tom Hendrickson.

Worcester: Scott van Breda; Nick David, Ashley Beck, Will Butler (captain), Alex Hearle; Billy Searle, Michael Heaney, Callum Black, Beck Cutting, Richard Palframan, James Scott, Andrew Kitchener, Caleb Montgomery, Sam Lewis, GJ van Velze.

Replacements: Isaac Miller, Lewis Holsey, Joe Morris, Justin Clegg, Matti Williams, Matt Cox, Jono Kitto, Oli Morris.
