Hull kept another cleansheet for their draw with Aston Villa on Saturday.
Faye told the Hull Daily Mail: "Everyone is surprised how well we are playing defensively. But we have a good manager who is very clever and professional.
"Because the gaffer is an ex-defender, he knows what we need to do and is a big professional. We have been very organised.
"We have very good players who are very strong and keep going, and I think this year we have a chance of a good season.
"It was a little bit frustrating against Aston Villa, but I still think it was a good result against a very good team with young players who were confident after beating Manchester City. They are an exciting team."
