Tottenham produced an outstanding performance to brush aside Everton and move two points behind second-placed Manchester City in the Premier League.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side had to come from behind at Goodison Park after Theo Walcott swept home Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s low cross from Gylfi Sigurdsson’s defence-splitting pass.
Everton’s lead was short-lived as Son Heung-min produced a sublime equaliser from a tight angle following a mix-up between Kurt Zouma and Jordan Pickford.
Dele Alli put Spurs ahead for the first time after reacting first to Pickford’s save from Son, then Harry Kane made it 3-1 when Kieran Trippier’s curling free-kick hit a post and rebounded into the England captain’s path.
In an entertaining game, Christian Eriksen’s sublime first-time shot extended Tottenham’s lead before Sigurdsson scored a consolation against his former club.
Son added the fifth and produced the cross for Kane to make it six, yet victory came at a cost for the free-scoring visitors.
Alli was forced off after a challenge with England team-mate Pickford, which former Three Lions captain Alan Shearer described as “disgusting”.
Spurs are five points ahead of Chelsea and Arsenal, who are fourth and fifth respectively.
