Sam Greenwood and Mateo Joseph send message on Instagram to Rodrigo Moreno

Leeds United reached the fourth round of the FA Cup for the first since 2017 last night with a 5-2 victory over Cardiff City.

Wilfried Gnonto and Patrick Bamford both scored braces, while Rodrigo Moreno was also on the score sheet.

The Spanish international was captain on the night, and took to Instagram after the match to celebrate his side’s win.

Leeds have put in some decent performances of late, but have failed to convert them into wins.

It means they currently sit just two points above the relegation zone, having failed to win since November.

Despite Leeds’s poor form, one man has stood out with his performances this season.

Rodrigo Moreno now has 12 goals in all competitions this campaign, and has scored in both his FA Cup appearances.

He’s currently one of the top scorers in the Premier League with 10 goals, and was on fire before the World Cup break.

Jesse Marsch will be hoping that the likes of Patrick Bamford and new signing Georginio Rutter can take some of the pressure off Rodrigo in front of goal.

Rodrigo impresses again in the FA Cup

The 31-year-old posted several pictures on Instagram, including one of him celebrating his well-taken goal.

He said, “Solid performance that also was reflected in the result tonight. We fight. We stay humble. We go.”

Sam Greenwood replied and thought Rodrigo was on fire, while Mateo Joseph Fernandez hailed his performance.

Rodrigo was described as being ‘a class above’ after his showing in the FA Cup last night.

His run in behind was found by a brilliant pass from Jack Harrison, and after rounding the goalkeeper, he slotted into the empty net.

It wasn’t the best goal of the game, with that honour going to Gnonto for his strike in the opening minute.

Marsch will be hoping Rodrigo can help drag his Leeds side away from a relegation scrap.

He’s been a leader on and off the pitch this season, and the Spaniard will hope to continue his goal scoring antics against Brentford on Sunday.
