The in-form England international, who took his tally in all competitions this season to 28 goals, matched Teddy Sheringham’s feat after he tapped in Son Heung-min’s through ball after the restart before prodding in Eric Dier’s cross on the hour mark.

Midfielder Son earlier scored in his fifth straight league game to put the hosts ahead 1-0 in the 26th minute after darting in to tap home Serge Aurier’s cross after Christian Eriksen found the right back with a floated pass in the 26th minute.

With Everton’s defence in tatters, Eriksen completed the rout by collecting fellow midfielder Dele Alli’s clever flick on before beating Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford with a crisp finish in the 81st minute.
