City face struggling Hull City at Eastlands.
De Jong told City's website: "There's a lot of hard games coming up, but I think Liverpool was a good one for us. The final result was not what we hoped for a time but we did well, and we have a good chance for a win at home this weekend.
"Six draws in a row is not what we want, but being at home should count for us. We want a couple of wins now even though we know Chelsea will be a difficult one, and we have the Carling Cup game in between. But the confidence is there because we are playing three times at home, which will give us a real boost.
"We know we can play against the best sides and that we can raise our game. We have showed that against Liverpool, we beat Arsenal and it was only a narrow defeat to United but we won't underestimate Hull this weekend."
