The referee has been confirmed for Albion's clash with Southampton on Monday night. (8pm, Sky Sports)

David Coote will be the man in the middle at the Amex.

It will be the first time that he has taken charge of an Albion game this season.

Coote refereed two of the Seagulls games last season which both ended in defeats away to Aston Villa (2-1) and away to Everton (1-0).

In charge of VAR on the night will be Peter Bankes.
