Fans call for Chelsea loanee Jamal Blackman to start for Leeds after Saturday night horror show

Despite not playing for their first team, Chelsea fans keep a close eye on Jamal Blackman’s career.

Coming through the youth academy, he was a part of Chelsea’s FA Youth Cup and UEFA Youth League success.

But although many saw him as a first team goalkeeper, he saw his pathway blocked by Petr Cech and lattely Thibaut Courtois.

As a result, Blackman’s been out on loan to Middlesborough, Östersunds, Wycombe Wanderers and Sheffield United.

Last season at Sheffield United was when Blackman really blossomed.

He played himself into the team and once he got the chance, he established himself as the Championship club’s number one.

On the back of that good season, Blackman once again went on loan to a Championship club – Leeds United.

Upon arrival, he was touted as Leeds’ number one, but Bailey Peacock-Farrell’s emergence has forced him to settle for a spot on the bench.

But a string of poor performances from Peacock-Farrell has Leeds fans calling for Blackman to play.

So, here’s how Leeds fans reacted to Blackman’s exclusion from their starting XI on Saturday against West Bromwich Albion:
