Faye was back for their win over West Ham United.
"I think we can survive," he told the Hull Daily Mail. "We have a strong team. We have a good squad. I'm very confident that this year we are going to surprise a few people.
"We have great fans and a great stadium. It's important to win your home games.
"Away games are so tough, so you have to have the mentality of winning every time you play at home."
