"It was important to get that victory against Bolton after what happened in London."
The Chelsea match apart, City have played some free-flowing, attractive football under manager Sven-Goran Eriksson.
Corluka likes the way the former England boss sets his teams up.
He said: "We like to play the ball on the floor and people enjoy that. We have a lot of skilful players and our results overall have been good. No-one really expected us to be high in the table at this stage but I feel we can still improve."
