first_imgLiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that defender Dejan Lovren sustained a hamstring injury during their 2-1 defeat at Wolves on Monday night.Lovren was replaced by 16-year-old Ki-Jana Hoever after just six minutes into the game at the Molineux.In his post-match press conference, Klopp confirmed the injury and gave an update on his condition.“[It is his] hamstring, is what I heard – without any signs before. I asked everybody, no signs, nothing, just out of the blue, so that’s the decision you have to make,” he told the club’s website.“I am not sure what you all would have said if immediately from the beginning if our centre-half situation was Fabinho and Ki-Jana; then probably a few very smart people would tell me that I don’t respect the competition or whatever.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“So, we tried to do all the things [we could].

It’s like similar homeless housing projects in Los Angeles and Orange County.Each is 320 square feet and includes a bathroom, kitchen and balcony.New homes going up much faster and a whole lot cheaper than conventional housing. center_img November 15, 2018 Updated: 5:32 PM Categories: Good Morning San Diego, Local San Diego News, Politics FacebookTwitterlast_img read more
