NORWICH AND SWANSEA played out a 1-1 draw in their Premier League encounter, during which Gary Hooper has scored one of the goals of the season.

The former Celtic striker equalised for the Canaries just before half-time after Nathan Dyer had put the Welsh side ahead with a 12th minute strike. Dyer was then taken off in a leg brace after landing badly midway through the half.

Check out this marvellous, dipping volley from Hooper and the slack defending from Swansea’s Jordi Amat:

Chris Hughton’s City were unlucky not to take the lead in the second-half as Michael Turner’s header crashed off the bar. Swansea pressed for a winner of their own in the closing stages and Wilfried Bony had their best chance but snatched at his shot.

The point moves Norwich back into 14th place while Swansea remain in 10th.
