The lead was doubled just over 10 minutes later when Dele Alli lifted the ball over the top for Son, who fired past Schmeichel with a first-time volley.

Spurs continued to push for more goals in the remaining stages of the first half, but Schmeicel produced two saves in the closing stages.

The scoring did not stop there for the visitors. Son managed to get his second and Spurs' fourth with a clinical effort from 20-yards out.

With the second half coming to an end, Craig Shakespeare introduced Nigerian forward, Ahmed Musa for Vardy in the final 10 minutes.

Kane managed to complete his hat-trick in the 88th minute with a driven effort from the edge of the box, as Spurs bagged their fifth goal,

There was enough time for Spurs to get a sixth goal as Kane collected a pass from Ben Davies before firing into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.
