'The referee had to make himself a hero' - Leicester City's Schmeichel fuming after penalty given to Liverpool

After a crushing defeat, the Foxes shot-stopper criticised match officials for the penalty awarded against his team

Kasper Schmeichel could find himself in hot water after accusing referee Michael Oliver of trying to be a 'hero' in Leicester City's heavy home defeat to Liverpool.

The Foxes 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 was angry about the spot-kick awarded to Liverpool and might draw the attention of the FA with his post-match comments.
