Kepa Arrizabalaga pronunciation delivered by Chelsea teammate Cesar Azpilicueta

With Kepa Arrizabalaga completing his world record £71 million move to Chelsea, some fans appeared to be daunted by the correct pronunciation of the young goalkeeper's 12-letter Basque surname.

Thankfully, fellow countryman Cesar Azpilicueta -- himself having been in a similar situation upon his arrival at Stamford Bridge -- was on hand to lend an assist by way of an instructive video.

The name is basically phonetic with a slight Basque flourish, but we suspect that won't stop the Blues faithful from restricting it to a short and simple "Kepa".

Anything's better than Dave, we suppose.
