Kane doubled his side’s advantage just after the break to tie Teddy Sheringham’s record before adding a third at the hour mark to become the club’s all-time top scorer in the league.
Christian Eriksen sealed the dominant win when he made it 4-0 late on after another beautiful piece of football by the home side.
The 24-year-old didn’t just become Spurs highest scorer in the competition, but also became the third player to score 20 goals on four consecutive seasons in the league.
Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer are the other two players who managed similar feat.
“[I am] Very proud to become Spurs’ all time leading premierleague goalscorer. More to come!,” Kane said via his social media account.

“Great result today. Son on fire and we were on it all over the pitch today. Big performances from everyone,” he added.
For Mauricio Pochettino’s side, they have now gone unbeaten in their last six games, but stay fifth on the log, level on points with Liverpool, who, however, have a game in hand.
“It was a fantastic performance,” an excited Spurs manager, Pochettino said. “What pleased me the most was the character and the way we took the game to them.”
For the Toffees, the defeat is their fourth successive one, and are also without a win in their last six game, a sharp contrast to when they went seven unbeaten after Sam Allardyce took over as manager.
The visitors handed a debut to new signing, Cenk Tosun, but the Turkey international failed to inspire his new side, and was subsequently substituted after the hour mark.
