Chelsea ended Scarborough's FA Cup fairytale Saturday, but the semipro side was not disgraced in its 1-0 loss to a club ranked 104 places above it.
John Terry scored the only goal of the fourth-round game in the 10th minute from a close-range header. Mario Melchiot had headed Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's cross back across the box for Terry to head into goal.
Defending champion Arsenal remains on track to become the first club in 118 years to win the FA Cup three straight times after beating Middlesbrough 4-1 at Highbury, while Liverpool beat Newcastle 2-1 with two goals from Bruno Cheyrou.
Two goals from Fredrik Ljungberg, and one each from Dennis Bergkamp and youngster David Bentley gave the Gunners the win. Joseph-Desire Job scored for Boro, who had George Boateng sent off in the 86th minute for a second yellow card.
"It was above normal quality today because we had outstanding movement in the game," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said. "I'm pleased it was a team performance and the young players came on and did well."
It was the third time this month the two had played -- Arsenal beat Boro 4-1 in the league on Jan. 10, then lost 1-0 in the first leg of the League Cup semifinal midweek.
Wenger sent star striker Thierry Henry on holiday, but Arsenal coped well without him.
"We known Thierry is a very important player but today we compensated for his absence and played very well," Wenger said.

On a sunny day at the McCain Stadium in northern England, Chelsea had numerous attempts to increase its lead but was foiled by poor finishing and a strong performance by Scarborough goalkeeper Leigh Walker.
"We had our chances but at the end of the day they had lot of pressure and made it difficult for us," Terry said. "They did well but we came here to do a job."
Frank Lampard, Eidur Gudjohnsen and Jesper Gronkjaer had first half chances before Scarborough goalkeeper Leigh Walker had a strong save in the 58th minute from a William Gallas header. Chelsea missed two chances soon after, with Gudjohnsen's strike parried by Walker and Lampard's rebound going over the bar.
"They had an enormous number of chances but we stuck in there and possibly had our chances," Scarborough manager Russell Slade said. "We gave our fans something to shout about."
Colin Cryan had the best chance for FA Cup glory for Scarborough with ten minutes left. Cryer had a clear shot at goal, but his header was safely caught by Chelsea goalkeeper Claudio Cudicini.
Scarborough fans were angry at not being awarded a penalty in the final stages, when Gallas appeared to handle the ball in the box.
"For me it was an obvious penalty," Slade said. "I'm slightly biased but it was clear to me. He looked like he handled but it wasn't to be."
