 The 15-time World Champion suffered defeat in the last 32 of the £1 million tournament for the first time since the PDC's formation 19 years ago as the St Helens ace picked up the biggest win of his career.
 
Chisnall averaged 99.05 to Taylor's 100.32, but crucially punished missed doubles from Taylor, who hit only ten from 31 attempts during the game in failing to reach at least the quarter-finals for the first time.
 
Taylor missed darts to win the first set and, after winning the second 3-2 lost the third and fourth in a decider to lead himself 3-1 down, before Chisnall edged in front in set five before sealing an amazing win in 13 darts.
 
"This is the best night of my career so far," said Chisnall. "It's a great feeling and I'm over the moon.
 
"I've been waiting to play Phil all year and I just took this as another game, I thought I'd play the dartboard and not the player and I didn't think about beating Phil Taylor, just about winning the game."
 
Taylor admitted: "Dave was the better player and deserved to win. Missing an 87 finish in the first leg knocked my confidence and I couldn't get it out of my head for a few legs, when I usually forget about it.
 
"Dave finished better than me and took the chances that he had, and he was brilliant. I've got to go away and work to put things right for 2012 and I'm going to work harder than ever to do that."
 
Chisnall now meets another Stoke star, Andy Hamilton, in the last 16 on Thursday, while he was joined in the third round by Kim Huybrechts and Paul Nicholson on Tuesday night.
 
Belgian newcomer Huybrechts followed up his first round whitewash of Brendan Dolan by seeing off James Richardson 4-1.
 
Richardson had caused a sensation of his own with victory over Raymond van Barneveld nine days earlier, but was unable to repeat the performance as Huybrecht's impressive emergence continued.
 
He now plays Nicholson in the third round, with the number nine seed having seen off Alan Tabern in straight sets, dropping only three legs in a high-quality performance.
 
Earlier in the day, Hamilton had come from 3-2 down to defeat Vincent van der Voort 4-3 in a thriller, while John Part defeated Richie Burnett 4-1 and Terry Jenkins saw off Co Stompe by the same scoreline, with the Dutchman suffering from a hand injury he sustained when bitten by a neighbour's dog on Christmas Eve.
 
Gary Anderson, the new 3/1 favourite with Ladbrokes to take the title on Monday January 2, returns to Alexandra Palace on Wednesday when he takes on South Africa's Devon Petersen in one of the four remaining second round games.
 
Mervyn King meets Michael van Gerwen in the afternoon session's opening clash, with Simon Whitlock - who hit the highest average of the first round despite his recent broken ankle - playing Steve Beaton and Colin Lloyd facing Scott Rand.
 
James Wade has been installed as the 9/2 second favourite behind Anderson (3/1), with Adrian Lewis 5/1, Simon Whitlock 7/1, Dave Chisnall 8/1 and Paul Nicholson 10/1 with Ladbrokes.
