Pic Special: On Your Marks...

It was short, sharp stuff at Newcastle's training ground on Friday as the Magpies prepared for Monday's season opener at Manchester City.

Much of the session was based around sprints while there were also passing exercises designed to ensure United are crisp in possession at the Etihad.

But there were smiles too, as Gabriel Obertan posed for our camera and Kit Man/Training Ground Assistant Neil Stoker reminded Yoan Gouffran that he was leading a regular post-training competition with the Frenchman by five games to one.

Capturing the images at Benton for nufc.co.uk was Dan King.
