Spurs had fallen behind after Shawal Anuar nipped in following some lax defending to give the hosts the lead but roared back on the stroke of half-time.
Harry Kane, strongly linked with a move away of course, converted a penalty after Pape Mata Sarr was brought down in the box in the 47th minute.
Manager Ange Postecoglou made wholesale changes at the break and all of Ivan Perisic, Manor Solomon and Richarlison impressed.
The Brazilian put Spurs ahead two minutes after the interval and again pounced on a defensive mix-up to bag his brace before the 50th minute mark. Positive play from Solomon then allowed Lo Celso to add a fourth before Richarlison struck his hat-trick during the dying embers of the game with a deft finish minutes before the full-time whistle.
