Dejan Lovren addresses his big mistake vs Palace in Instagram post

Liverpool's exciting brand of football led to another crucial three points on Saturday evening as they overcame Crystal Palace 4-2 at Selhurst Park.

For a brief moment in the first half, however, it looked like the Merseyside club could be made to rue their defensive frailties. That's after Dejan Lovren gifted Palace an equaliser after 18 minutes after a truly awful attempt at a clearance. 

Moments later, though, the Croatian centre-back had made amends by scoring a header to put Liverpool back in front. Now, with three points secured after a hectic evening, Lovren has taken to social media to address his big mistake.

Posting a message to his official Instagram account, the Liverpool defender wrote:

"There are good and bad days, it is a part of football to do mistakes, to be honest I hate them! 

"But its up to you if you're ready to come back in the best possible way. And I AM...and the TEAM also thank u fans for ur amazing support."

Had the 27-year-old not made up for his howler - seen below - so quickly, and had Klopp's men not rallied to put themselves on 23 Premier League points for the season so far, he might have been in for a harder time from the Liverpool faithful on Saturday night.

However, whilst he did take some stick at the time, his thumping header three minutes later meant it was only short lived. Even Jamie Carragher was impressed with how Lovren responded.

And, as you can see from his somewhat intense message on Instagram, Lovren and this Liverpool team appear to have the mental strength to overcome any issues they face.

So far this season, there haven't been too many of them.

Klopp has his Liverpool side playing some exhilarating football right now and, although they still trail Arsenal and Manchester City on goal difference at the head of the Premier League, the Anfield club are legitimate title contenders at this stage of the season.

While it will be important for Lovren to cut out any more mental errors if they are to give themselves the best chance of getting their hands on the trophy, things are certainly looking positive at this stage.
