Eden Hazard will look to tear Reading apart on Wednesday, but had Brian McDermott had his way, the Chelsea star would have been lining up for the Royals instead.

Hazard may have only played one Barclays Premier League match, but expectations of the 21-year-old are already high after he starred in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Wigan on Sunday.

McDermott first saw Hazard play five years ago when he was coming through the ranks at Lille, and he explained: "You can't go to a place like Lille and say 'we'll take your best player', it just doesn't happen. But I remember watching him. He was 16 and I thought he was a great talent then."
