De Bruyne made it 2-0 with a powerful shot on 70 minutes, firing the ball past Lloris at his near post. The Frenchman got a hand to the shot, but simply could not keep it out.
The home side were then awarded a penalty after a foul by Jan Vertonghen on De Bruyne, but substitute Gabriel Jesus hit the post.
Sterling then finished off a fine team move to make it 3-0 on 80 minutes before a mistake by Eric Deir and indecision from Lloris allowed the England international to score his second.
Christian Eriksen pulled one back for Spurs in injury-time but it was an afternoon to forgot for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
