Spurs looked a good bet for a goal all day, and Kane cashed in when his towering header of a Nacer Chadli chipped cross made it level in the 64th minute.
Alli took Spurs ahead in the 84th minute, juggling around defenders before turning to last a half-volley home. It was a stunning goal, gorgeous at every touch, and Tottenham was deservedly ahead.
Chadli added a stoppage time goal from outside the 18 to put a bow on all three points.
