Leicester fans react on Twitter to Andrej Kramaric's performance against Arsenal

How Leicester's Twitter-based supporters reacted to Andrej Kramaric's performance in the 2-1 defeat at Arsenal.

Leicester City remain five points adrift at the bottom of the Premier League table following Tuesday night’s 2-1 defeat at Arsenal, with Nigel Pearson’s side unable to find the equaliser after Andrej Kramaric’s strike.

Arsenal opened the scoring just before the half hour when Mesut Ozil whipped in a corner for Laurent Koscielny to head home, before the German playmaker saw a shot blocked on 41 minutes which Theo Walcott turned in to double their advantage.

Leicester rallied after the break, however, with winter signing Kramaric netting his first goal in English football on the hour with a low shot past David Ospina.

The Croatian striker almost earned his side a point late on with another teasing effort, but the Gunners goalkeeper denied him on this occasion to see the home team hold on for the win.

In 20th-place since late-November, Leicester look resigned to an immediate return to the Championship based on current form, but in Kramaric they do have a player who looks capable of helping them pick up a few victories over their remaining 13 games.

The 23-year-old international bagged an impressive 28 goals in 31 total appearances for Dinamo Zagreb this season before moving to the King Power Stadium last month, and fans will hope that record is a sign of things to come.

While it’s just one strike in five appearances for the club so far, the Foxes faithful have certainly been encouraged by his start judging from the reaction on Twitter after the match at the Emirates Stadium.
