However, Jol believes that the standard of competition is so high in the Premier League that they are not yet clear of danger.
"Hopefully 39 points is enough but it is a tough competition, probably the only one in the world where the team in 10th could still possibly go down," said the Dutch manager.
The match also saw Fulham's Steve Sidwell given a straight red for a heavy tackle 10 minutes from time, but Jol believes that it was a harsh decision.
"The red card was a bit harsh I think. I can see why the referee gave it but he was unfortunate because you could see Steve wanted to pull out of the tackle," he added.
Fulham's next match comes away to Newcastle United on Sunday.
