Loads of Leeds fans have been reacting to the huge injury setback to Jamal Blackman, as the youngster will return to Chelsea after fracturing his tibia.
Blackman’s loan at Leeds is over before it even began, as the Chelsea youngster will now return to his parent club.
The 25 year-old has been forced to settle for a place on the bench as Marcelo Bielsa persists with Bailey Peacock-Farrell, and many fans were calling for a change as Peacock-Farrell struggles for form.

That change will never happen though, after Blackman injured his leg during an Under-23’s game on Friday.
That now leaves Bielsa in a pretty precarious position, as his only fit goalkeeper is out of form and down on confidence.
Academy star Will Huffer will now presumable take Blackman’s place on the bench, but the Whites will simply have to look for reinforcements in January.
Fans are wishing Blackman all the best, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions to the devastating setback down below…

Maybe it’s time to step down the amount of U23 games the first team players get? As the two most serious injuries this season has come from U23’s games…
