Chelsea captain John Terry was sent off as his side lost 2-1 away to Tottenham in the league for the first time since 1987, while Arsenal crashed at West Ham.
The results mean Manchester United, who beat Portsmouth 3-0 on Saturday, sit on top with 28 points, three clear of champions Chelsea with the Gunners now 10 points adrift in fifth.
Claude Makelele had given Chelsea a 14th-minute lead, striking home a swerving volley from the edge of the box, but Michael Dawson leveled 10 minutes later, glancing in Jermaine Jenas's free-kick.
An extraordinary end-to-end game tipped Tottenham's way six minutes into the second half as Aaron Lennon took down Robbie Keane's deflected cross, slipped by Ashley Cole and beat Hilario with a cool sidefoot finish.
As Chelsea's frustrations mounted, Terry, already booked for a foul on Dimitar Berbatov, collected a second yellow card after apparently taking a swing at England teammate Ledley King after 71 minutes.
Even with 10 men, though, Chelsea ensured Spurs endured an agonizing last quarter-hour, pinning them back in their own box.
Cross after cross rained into the Tottenham box and Arjen Robben curled a 20-yard shot against the face of the post but Spurs, somehow, hung on.
"It's tremendous for the players and especially the supporters. It has been a long time coming," Keane said afterwards. "The players showed a lot of character today."

Ronnie O’Sullivan delivered a scathing attack on the next generation of snooker players after he made the quarter-finals of the World Snooker Championship on Sunday, ending Chinese star Ding Junhui’s world championship dream. The mercurial 44-year-old Englishman won an enthralling high-quality second-round encounter 13-10 to set up a quarter-final clash with three-time champion Mark Williams. When asked by the BBC whether he thought he would remain at the top of the game for this long, the Briton, who turned professional in 1992, said the poor quality of younger players had secured his position and that something drastic would have to happen
