Ronald Koeman's side secured a vital win in their bid for a place in Europe next season and saw several star performances against Stoke.
Pelle, of course, was one of them - and so many fans were delighted with the Italian's contribution following several indifferent displays so far this season. His two goals ensured a consolation effort from the Potters meant nothing in terms of points.
Defender Van Dijk, however, was many people's choice for man of the match against Stoke. And Southampton fans were equally pleased with Long, who has been such a consistent performer on the South Coast this term.
Here's how the Southampton faithful reacted on Twitter to the duo's performances against Stoke - with a few mentions for Pelle, too...
Long making his price tag seem smaller & smaller by the day. Every game now he is worthy of MOTM & a better player now than ever #saintsfc— Jason Rodwell (@jasonarkaim) March 12, 2016
Though Pelle scored 2 (long anticipated) goals, mt MOTM IS Virgil VanDijk!#SaintsFC— Tom Blaha (@sockalexis2003) March 12, 2016
Great and slightly unexpected win. Virgil or Longy motm despite 2 goals for Graziano. Europa League push back on again! #saintsfc— G. Kimber-Sweatman (@georgeismyname) March 12, 2016
Massive win for #SaintsFC after the last 3 games. Pellè and Long were very good. Virgil immense!— SeanGonzalez-Lambert (@SeanGL_SFC_5) March 12, 2016
Again Long man of the match so far Great performance after last week against Sunderland. Hard to see anything other than a win #saintsfc— Steve Ingate (@stephenjohninga) March 12, 2016
Much more threatening with Long in the side. His running opens up gaps for Tadic and Pelle to slot into #saintsfc— Nathan Thomas (@Nathanthomasj) March 12, 2016
Van Dijk brilliant again today, and Pelle was very good - nice to see him having an influence. Deserved win. #saintsfc— Alex Tait (@alextaitsfc) March 12, 2016
