'It's theirs to lose' - Leicester's Schmeichel anoints Liverpool as likely champions

Kasper Schmeichel has admitted his Leicester City side were outclassed against a Liverpool team he ranks as the best in the world.

The goalkeeper was helpless on Thursday as the Reds romped to a 4-0 win at the King Power Stadium through a Roberto Firmino brace, alongside a James Milner penalty and a Trent Alexander-Arnold strike to cap the display.

Schmeichel acknowledged the greatness of his team's opponent and admitted the Foxes were some way behind the Merseyside club and Manchester City.
