New boss Michael Laudrup intends to find different ways for Swansea to surprise their opponents next term to combat potential second-season syndrome.
The Dane, who recently succeeded Brendan Rodgers at the helm of the Welsh club, has been charged with maintaining and improving their Premier League fortunes following a sparkling debut season.
Under Rodgers, now in charge at Liverpool, the Swans secured an 11th-placed finish while earning plaudits for their stylish, creative approach.
Laudrup, capped 104 times by Denmark and among the finest footballers of his generation at clubs like Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid, is seen by many as a perfect fit for Swansea post-Rodgers.
But the 47-year-old believes the club cannot allow themselves to become predictable.
"We are going into the second season as a Premier League club, which is sometimes more difficult," said Laudrup.
"Now, everyone knows who Swansea are, how they play and what they do. You have to try to find some other things that can surprise opponents.
"To finish in the middle of the table in the first season was a fantastic achievement, but what the team did last season, that was last season."
Laudrup never ventured to England during his playing days but is looking forward to taking on the challenge as a manager.
"As a youngster when I was living in Denmark we used to watch English football on television every Saturday afternoon," he said.
"I always thought there was something special about the atmosphere in English football.
"This is a great opportunity for me. It's a big challenge, but I did not want to be sitting on the couch at home in 15 years' time saying to myself 'why didn't I do it?'
"I never played here, but now I have the possibility as a manager."
