Some Sheffield United fans have expressed concerns over the form of their on-loan Chelsea goalkeeper Jamal Blackman.

Blackman moved to Bramall Lane on a season-long loan in July and has only missed one of the Blades' 19 Championship fixtures this season, through injury.

In that time the 24-year-old, who had never played above the fourth tier in England before signing for Sheffield United, has kept only five clean sheets.

And after Saturday's 1-1 draw against Birmingham City, a number of Blades fans are keen to see last season's number one Simon Moore return.

Sheffield United, who have defied many people's expectations to sit third in the second tier, conceded first to a well-struck long-range effort - ironically - from Blackman's Chelsea teammate Jeremie Boga, before Leon Clarke's second-half equaliser.

Here's what some Blades fans have been saying in the meantime...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blackman came through the ranks at Chelsea, but is still awaiting his first competitive appearance for the Blues, who have also loaned him out to Middlesbrough, Ostersunds and Wycombe Wanderers.

Should Sheffield United drop Blackman?
