Erik Lamela led the way with a hat-trick in the first half - the first of his career - as we flew out of the traps on matchday six.
The second half brought another first - Tom Carroll's first Spurs goal - as we secured top spot in style after Stephan El Shaarawy had initially pulled a goal back for the visitors just after the hour mark.
