Tottenham moved to second place within two points of Manchester City, having lost 6-2 at Everton.
The clash was dominated by talks about Manchester United's interest in Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino following the decision to separate Jose Mourinho. He showed, however, that he was fully focused on the job when his team made a stunning performance that brought them back into the title picture.
Manchester City and Chelsea suffered a home defeat on Saturday and Tottenham seized the opportunity
However, despite the creation of the majority of early chances, they had scored within 21 minutes as the former Arsenal striker Theo Walcott could pass Dominic Calvert-Lewin's retreat to Hugo Lloris.
Everton Two minutes later, he was 2-0 in the lead when Calvert-Lewin struck after Walcott's cross, but pushed Spurs defender Davinson Sanchez in the back.
That decision would prove crucial as Son Heung-Min benefited from a mix-up between Jordan Pickford and Kurt Zouma just moments later. The Everton duo met and the ball fell to the South Korea international, who finished well from a tight angle.
Dele Alli made it 2-1 for the visitors ten minutes before half-time when Pickford struggled to get Harry Kane into the path of the former MK Dons.
And Kane The fourth goal came after 42 minutes. Kieran Trippier's free-kick hit the post and came to the English captain, who knocked coolly into an empty net.
Shortly before the break, Pickford Alli had caught a meeting, forcing Tottenham's midfielder to be half replaced by Erik Lamela.
But the change did not change Tottenham's moment when they took the lead after three minutes in the second half, after Christian Eriksen had drilled Seamus Coleman's ball into the bottom corner
Not to kill home team when Gylfi Sigurdsson almost immediately reduced the deficit against his former team – an attack on Lloris, who could have better fight. However, this turned out to be a false dawn, as Son killed any hope of a comeback with a fifth place just after the number of hours.
Lamela's passing ball found its way to Spurs's # 39; 7, who was offside and kept his position with Ball passing Pickford.
And Tottenham still was not ready when Kane made an outstanding move as he shot past Pickford 16 minutes before the final whistle.
While the Spurs remain in third place, Everton sees this defeat remaining in 11th place, but only after scoring goals, as they now face West Ham's 12th-minute goal difference.
