Christian Eriksen scored one and created the other for Siem de Jong as Ajax demolished Heracles Almelo 6-0 to move top of the Dutch league.
Previous leader AZ Alkmaar was held to a 2-2 draw at Vitesse Arnhem.
Lorenzo Ebecilio set up Theo Janssen for the opening goal in the 25th before doubling the lead with a goal three minutes after the break. Erikson made it 3-0 before De Jong played in Vurnon Anita for the fourth.
De Jong and then Kolbeinn Sigthorsson - returning as a second half substitute after five months on the sidelines with an injury -added goals in the last 18 minutes to complete the rout.
Ajax has 58 points, one more than AZ and three ahead of No. 3 FC Twente.
