Exeter ended Saracens’ 22-game unbeaten run and replaced them at the top of the Premiership with a thrilling 31-13 win.
Two Owen Farrell penalties gave Sarries an early lead but Luke Cowan-Dickie’s try and a Gareth Steenson penalty saw the home side go into the break ahead.
A Farrell penalty hit the post at the start of an error-strewn second half.
But Harry Williams and Matt Kvesic scores, plus a penalty try, sealed the victory, with Ben Spencer’s effort a mere consolation for Saracens.
The win moves Exeter three points above Saracens at the top of the table as they approach the mid-way point of the season.
