Dai Young's men have now lost ten games in a row in all competitions, losing their first two in this year's Aviva Premiership, and have won just once against Sale in their last five encounters.
Wasps have not lost three games in a row at the start of a Premiership season since the 2008/2009 campaign, but have not won away at Sale since 2005.
Sharks sneaked past Wasps with a 21-20 victory back in May, which extended their unbeaten home run to four games.
Despite a disappointing defeat last Friday, Steve Diamond will take pleasure from the fact that Sale have conceded just one try in their opening two games of the season.
The new scrum laws have been making the headlines over the summer, but Wasps seem to have got to grips with the new rules, winning 93% of their own put ins.
Sale's ability to steal the opposition's lineout has been impressive so far this season, winning six opposition throws in just two games.
The game could also see Mark Cueto and Christian Wade come up against each other, two players at opposite ends of their careers.
Cueto will be out to show youngster Wade that he still has much to learn, with both players managing one try each in their first two games.
