United begin the defence of their title against Reading at Old Trafford on Sunday, boosted by four and three-goal wins over Dunfermline and Glentoran respectively on Wednesday night.
"We are ready," Queiroz said ahead of the new season. "There is no doubt we believe the boys are fully prepared. We realise it is a different ball game now. The Premier League is starting, it has a different atmosphere, different problems and there is a different intensity. But everybody is very excited by the challenge and ready to run this race."
