After already playing against the likes of Liverpool, Everton, Manchester United and City away from home, some could argue that the Blues had already navigated their way through the so-called tougher fixtures.
Newcastle, however, boasted an excellent record against Jose Mourinho’s side and did what no other team has done this season - break the West Londoners’ resilience with an excellent 2-1 victory.
The defeat means that the Gunners’ 49-game unbeaten league record, including the entire 2003-04 season, is safe for at least another season prompting Parlour to share his delight on Twitter.
Despite the defeat, the Stamford Bridge outfit remain in an extremely strong position at the top of the table and are heavy favourites to pip rivals Manchester City to the title, a stance Parlour also acknowledges.
The Blues will look to bounce back with victory in the Champions League on Tuesday before they host strugglers Hull City in the league next weekend.
