Defoe then got on the scoresheet on the stroke of half time with a simple finish from close range.
The England international netted again 10 minutes after the restart following an error from the goalkeeper, and he got his hat-trick in the 80th minute when he slotted the ball home after collecting Gylfi Sigurdsson's pass.
