Jol's side visit the Etihad Stadium to take on champions Manchester City before facing leaders Manchester United twice in a week - either side of a home game against West Ham.
The Cottagers head into the weekend 13th in the table, but Jol reckons the team are doing well and hopes they kick on in the new year - just as they did last season.
"We are still unbeaten in January," he said.
"We have won two away games at West Brom and Blackpool and two draws against Blackpool and Wigan, so it is not alarming.
"The only thing is if you compare us with last season we had an unbelievable spell after Christmas and if the league had run for six months we would have finished in the top five.
"We would like to bring in one or two players in the next couple of weeks but if not I feel that we are strong enough to get points.
"We had 52 points last year but with different players. For example, Clint Dempsey was scoring all of our winning goals."
