He inherits the jersey from Blues legend Petr Cech, who left for London rivals Arsenal in a controversial transfer last month after losing his place to Thibaut Courtois.
Begovic too is expected to act as deputy to the Belgian, but Chelsea have revealed on their official Twitter page that he has been given the number one shirt, with Courtois staying as number 13.
