Norwich expect Hooper to play at Palace

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)."
