Kasper Schmeichel has admitted that Liverpool and Manchester City are far off from Leicester.

Leicester City suffered their second consecutive loss in the Premier League at the hands of Liverpool yesterday.

Despite being 1-0 down, the Foxes looked to be in control of the game until late in the second half. But the goals came piling for Liverpool after the referee awarded a penalty against Leicester for a handball on Caglar Soyuncu.

Kasper Schmeichel, who let in three goals inside eight minutes, has deemed the referee’s decision for the spot-kick against them to be invalid. The Danish shot-stopper also feels that his team have a long way to match the top sides in the Premier League.

“I think [the decision] was a bit tough,” Schmeichel told as Goal reports.

“We were in the game until the referee had to make himself a hero. From then on, we lost our composure – they are the best team in the world at the moment, but it is important for us not to lose sight of the big picture.

“We are very early into our journey. Man City, Liverpool, these are the type of teams we strive to be like but they’re a lot further down the line in their development than we are.

“If someone had offered us this position at the start of the season, we would have taken it, so it is important to have a bit of perspective as well.”
