Brentford goalkeeper David Raya will be out for four to five months after sustaining a knee injury in Sunday’s 2-1 loss to Leicester City.

The 26-year-old was injured in a clash with Leicester forward Ayoze Pérez in the final moments of the Premier League match.

Brentford Medical Director Neil Greig said Raya was not anticipated to require surgery on his injured left knee.

He said: ‘Unfortunately, David has suffered an injury to the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

The problem will require an extended period of time to heal and for David to regain function and strength around the joint.

“Positively, this type of injury usually heals well without the need for surgery. David has already started wearing a brace specifically designed to aid in this process.

“We anticipate that the recovery period from an injury like this will be between four and five months, allowing David to return to his previous levels well before the end of the season.”

Álvaro Fernández, who joined Brentford on loan from Huesca in the summer, could get his first Premier League start against Burnley on Saturday.

The 23-year-old kept a clean sheet in Carabao Cup victories against Forest Green Rovers and Oldham Athletic.
