Gary Hooper is carried away from the action after taking "a whack on the sh

The striker, signed from Celtic this summer, took a blow to the shin while making his first start for City in a 2-0 victory at Carrow Road.

And Chris Hughton afterwards said he was hopeful the results of a scan would clear Hooper of serious injury.

"Gary has been taken for a precautionary X-ray," he said. "He got a whack on the shin, it was an awkward challenge.

"We'll wait and see what the X-ray shows but hopefully it's just a whack which will be a bit sore rather than anything more serious."

City's victory over the Greek side came courtesy of two goals from Bradley Johnson, the first a header from Robert Snodgrass' early free-kick.

Johnson's second came in similar fashion after half-time, Javier Garrido providing the ammunition this time with a left-wing cross.

Before the game Hughton named last season's player of the year Sebastien Bassong as his new captain following Grant Holt's summer departure.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
