Andrej Kramaric living the dream at King Power

Published Add your comment

Premier League returnees from Filbert Street are deeply cemented in the relegation zone, and the fact Nigel Pearson is close to the club's exit door creates even more trouble, like they haven't had enough this season. 

Finding positive in the Foxes' run is harder than ever, but as well as in every story, we come to realise something magnificent in defeat. Andrej Kramaric is that 'something' for Leicester City this winter. 

City's new number 40 has broken records at Croatian side Rijeka, scoring up to five goals in a single match. The 23-year-old's soon transfer had become obvious when Kramaric scored three versus not-so-weak Feyenoord in October.

Kramaric's diversity couldn't have gone unrecognised and the first senior national team call-up earned in September proved the point. Playing alongside his long-time role model Mario Mandzukic maybe pushed him more forward to celebrate his debut in a proper way - with a goal.

It was in early January when Kramaric decided to move abroad. Taking upon Leicester instead of Chelsea was nothing but right, considering the number of loaned-out Blues which includes three Croats already.

The Championship title holders were ecstatic after seeing 'Krama' in action. The youngster made his blue debut against Stoke, replacing United's nightmare frontman, Jamie Vardy, for the final third of the game. Less than one month away, Leicester were facing Arsenal with Kramaric as their target man.

Although Arsenal had secured a home win with two first-half goals from Walcott and Laurent Koscielny, Kramaric stunned Wenger with a Premiership debut goal. It could have easily ended up in a draw, but the forward's cheeky lob attempts later on were all gathered by in-form Colombian David Ospina. 

The Croatian also closed the scoring at Villa Park in an FA Cup clash last month with a brilliant header. Leicester, despite bright performances of the new signing, remain on the Premier League bottom with four victories in 28 matches. This is the right moment to change their luck and pull off a shock at the season end. Andrej Kramaric is key for their salvation.
