Pic Special: Gunning For Arsenal
Owner Mike Ashley paid a flying visit - literally - to United's training ground on Friday morning, where he watched the squad put through their paces for the final game of the Premier League season.
Alongside managing director Derek Llambias, Ashley arrived at the Club's Benton headquarters via helecopter and, among others, spent time chatting to goalkeeper Steve Harper, who will complete his 20th season on Tyneside with an appearance against Arsenal on Sunday.
United are safe from relegation but will be looking to complete their 2012/13 campaign with a victory over the Gunners, and there was no let-up from the players in their penultimate training session.
