Tottenham Hotspur scored three times in the opening half-hour as they won 4-0 at Leeds United to boost their top-four hopes, moving up to seventh place.
The visitors went ahead in the 10th minute as Ryan Sessegnon crossed for his fellow wing-back Matt Doherty, who scored his first goal for the club.
Five minutes later Dejan Kulusevski wriggled free from a tight spot near the right corner flag, exchanged passes with Doherty and finished powerfully at the near post for his second goal in three matches.
Leeds nearly hit straight back as Robin Koch hit the post, but instead it became 3-0 in the 27th minute as Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg chipped the ball over the top and, despite the tight angle, Harry Kane volleyed into the far corner.
Spurs added a final flourish in the 85th minute as Kane pinged a glorious long-range ball over the top to Son Heung-min, who fired past Illan Meslier.
Kane and Son have now assisted each other for 37 Premier League goals, moving one ahead of Chelsea duo Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard and setting a Premier League record.
Spurs move on to 42 points, five points behind fourth-placed Manchester United with two matches in hand. Leeds drop to 16th after their fourth straight defeat, two points above the relegation zone.
Leeds: 5 Mar v Leicester (A)
Spurs: 7 Mar v Everton (H)
