Goals from Matt Doherty, Dejan Kulusevski and Harry Kane quickly quietened a typical noisy Leeds crowd, and a strong second-half display was eventually rewarded when Heung-Min Son added a fourth late on. Leeds had their chances, striking the woodwork twice but, for the most part, we were always on control.

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, four points behind fourth-placed Manchester United with a match in hand. Leeds stay 15th after their fourth straight defeat, three points above the relegation zone.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane said ,”Those milestones are nice to have but we give full credit to the team behind us.”

After the match Tottenham Hotspur coach Antonio Conte said ,”I’m pleased for my players. Today, I asked for answers, not only about footballing aspects, but especially in the character, in the spirit, in the desire, the will to fight, the will to win duels. Today, in a difficult game – don’t forget to play against Leeds away, in this stadium, is not easy – to have these types of answers is good for me.”
