Colwill is not in the squad at Stamford Bridge.
Otherwise, Mauricio Pochettino sticks with the same team which started the 4-1 win at Tottenham on Monday.
It means Robert Sanchez continues in goal in front of a back four of Reece James, Axel Disasi, Thiago Silva and Cucurella.
A midfield three of Moises Caicedo, Enzo Fernandez and Conor Gallagher all keep their places behind Raheem Sterling, Cole Palmer and Nicolas Jackson.
The match comes too soon for £52million summer signing Christopher Nkunku, who could be fit to face Newcastle after the international break but will not be risked against Pep Guardiola’s top-flight leaders.
Nkunku remains out, along with Trevoh Chalobah, Wesley Fofana, Romeo Lavia, Ben Chilwell and Carney Chukwuemeka.
Armando Broja returns on the bench.
Confirmed Chelsea XI: Sanchez, Disasi, Silva, Cucurella, James, Fernandez, Caicedo, Gallagher, Sterling, Palmer, Jackson
Subs: Petrovic, Badiashile, Mudryk, Madueke, Ugochukwu, Broja, Gusto, Maatsen, Matos
Time and date: 4:30pm GMT on Sunday November 12, 2023
