The Rossoblu have won two of their opening three games to find themselves level on seven points with Juventus and Udinese at the top of the standings.
"Besides being at the top of the standings, we played a great game against Catania in front of our fans," said Malesani, whose side followed their impressive weekend win at Lazio with a 3-0 triumph over Catania on Wednesday.
"I am very happy that the team is playing well but what really interests me are the results because that is what counts.
"We still have room for improvement but are on the right path."
Genoa will not take Chievo lightly as the men from Verona go into the encounter at the Stadio Marc' Antonio Bentegodi on the back of a 1-0 midweek triumph over Napoli courtesy of Davide Moscardelli's goal.
That result ended Napoli's unbeaten run and saw Chievo keep a clean sheet for the first time this season.
Chievo coach Domenico Di Carlo has demanded more of the same tomorrow.
"I saw great intensity from my team and I'm very happy with the performance," he said. "Everyone gave their best in order to put last weekend's defeat to Parma behind us.
"Now we must pick up where we left off against Napoli in order to do well against Genoa."
The hosts will be hoping to welcome back captain Sergio Pellissier, who missed the game against Napoli with a thigh injury.
