The £5million summer signing from Celtic cracked home a fourth goal in six games with a superb 30-yard strike to earn a point against Swansea at Carrow Road.
Hooper - who missed the opening six weeks of a first campaign in the English top flight because of a shin problem - was set up by an intelligent knockdown from Elmander, which epitomised the workrate of the burly Sweden international who signed on a season-long loan deal from Galatasaray. We both put a shift in and know how to do it, with one of us sitting in on the midfielders and we know when to press, so I think we work well together," said Hooper.
Club-record signing Ricky van Wolfswinkel could well be back from a toe injury to be in contention for Saturday's trip to relegation-battlers Sunderland, and Hooper feels that will only add some healthy competition to lead the Norwich frontline.
"From what I have seen of Ricky in training I am sure we could work together, we could mix it up, the same as me and Johan," said Hooper.
"There are a lot of games, big games, over Christmas and we need to get everyone fit."
