Hull City midfielder Bernard Mendy admits Premiership rivals are now used to them.
"We got promoted and nobody knew us. This element of surprise helped us upset Manchester [United] and beat Arsenal and Tottenham," he said.
"But today things have changed and teams have learnt about us. It has become much harder, especially because our squad is lacking experience.
"It's hard, but we are going to do everything to secure our Premier League status."
