This article profiles the top 10 central defenders in World Football based on form. That means that this piece will consider the players only on their performances during the course of the season so far, rather than their reputation and status.

As Europe’s major leagues begin to gather pace and canter forth, we are in a position to analyse the statistics, considering the games that have gone before, and make a judgement on the quality of a player’s contributions.
