Jol told the club's official website: "Today was a test for us to try to get a result. Of course, Villa do well and, hopefully for them, with their philosophy, with all these youngsters, they will stay up.
"I say hopefully for them because I've got a few managers who are at good clubs who want to stay up as well, but I think the future is theirs.
"I'm a happy customer that we've got 40 points, and other results were okay for us today so that is fantastic."
Fulham are now 10th in the Premier League and are nine points clear of the relegation zone.
