Rodrigo has been a key figure for Leeds since Jesse Marsch took charge.

The Spaniard has scored in back-to-back wins over Norwich City and Wolverhampton Wanderers, earning 13 points in Fantasy.

The underlying numbers highlight his impact for the new head coach.

Leading the line 

Rodrigo’s seven shots and six shots in the both rank joint-top for Leeds in Marsch’s four matches at the helm.

His prospects of more starts have been enhanced further by an injury setback for striker Patrick Bamford (£7.7m).

Southampton, meanwhile, visit on Saturday in poor away form in defence.

They have conceded at least twice in 11 of their 14 road trips this season.

Leeds' match against Southampton is one of two successive matches that score only two in the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), with a visit to Watford in Gameweek 32.

Rodrigo has the form to profit from those matches, offering managers a short-term solution before Leeds blank in Gameweek 33.
