Norwich 1-1 Swansea Stats and Highlights
Gary Hooper’s fourth goal in six games denied Swansea a first Premier League win over Norwich in a 1-1 draw that kept the Swans above the Canaries.
The summer signing brilliantly volleyed a 25-yard equaliser after Nathan Dyer had capitalised on Sebastien Bassong’s error to lob the visitors ahead.
Dyer was then stretchered off with a suspected fractured right ankle.
Michael Turner headed against the bar for Norwich after the break before Hooper was denied by Michel Vorm.
