Jamie Carragher has stated that he wished he was able to score goals following a mistake for Liverpool, as fellow centre-back Dejan Lovren did on Saturday evening.

The 27-year-old Croatia international sliced a clearence in the first half, which allowed Crystal Palace midfieder James McArthur to head home and equalise for the south London side.

However, moments later Lovren was up the other end of the pitch and heading home from a corner.

This drew an amusing post from retired former Liverpool defender Carragher on his personal Twitter account, who was not short of errors at the back himself, especially with own goals.

Despite the Lovren’s error Liverpool still ensured victory with a 4-2 win at Sellhurst Park.

Goals from the centre-back as well as Emre Can, Roberto Firmino and fellow defender Joel Matip handed Jurgen Klopp’s side the win, cancelling out two from McArthur.

There have been questions asked regarding Lovren’s defensive capabilities in the past, but he has cemented himself as a regular starter in the heart of Klopp’s defence.

He has made eight appearances for the Merseysiders in the new campaign as they sit in third place with the same amount of points as league leaders Manchester City and Arsenal.

In other Liverpool news, Ryan Giggs has said that this is what Liverpool are missing ahead of their title challenge.
