Norwich City boss Chris Hughton suggests striker Gary Hooper will be fit for Wednesday’s clash with Crystal Palace.

The former Celtic star was subbed off at half-time of Saturday’s 1-0 loss to Manchester United because of a muscle complaint but should be fine for the trip to Selhurst Park on New Year’s Day.

"At the moment, Hooper's okay," Hughton said. "It was very much a precaution.

"It was something he flagged up to us at half-time and we needed to be sure that he was going to be okay. We expect him to train tomorrow (Tuesday).”
