Care comes in for Ben Youngs at scrum-half, while prop Vunipola replaces Joe Marler at loosehead, with coach Eddie Jones opting to maintain the 23-man squad that defeated Wales last weekend.

That win over the Welsh, plus Scotland’s triumph against Les Bleus handed the Red Rose this year’s Championship and they head to Paris trying to win the country’s first Grand Slam since 2003.

Victory at the Stade de France would mark a stark turnaround from England’s disastrous elimination during the group stages of last year’s World Cup but Jones is taking nothing for granted and insists they still have a job to do.

"We've picked our best 23 who we know can get the job done in Paris," he said. "While we are pleased to have already won the championship, we don't want to let our foot off the gas.

"The objective has always been to win every game, to be the most dominant team in Europe, so it's been very important for us to approach this week with the same level of intensity we have shown in previous weeks."

England: M Brown, A Watson, J Joseph, O Farrell, J Nowell, G Ford, D Care, M Vunipola, D Hartley, D Cole, M Itoje, G Kruis, C Robshaw, J Haskell, B Vunipola. Replacements: L Cowan-Dickie, J Marler, K Brookes, J Launchbury, J Clifford, B Youngs, M Tuilagi, E Daly.
