The Merseyside club are currently fifth in the table but just a point behind fourth-placed Arsenal heading into the final four games of the season.
If Everton have got any dreams of making the Champions League they’ve got to win
And former Everton forward Sharp believes that the Toffees’ hopes of Champions League qualification rest on beating the the Red Devils at Goodison Park this weekend.
“Sunday will be important. If they get a result – by that I mean a victory and three points – they will still believe there’s an outside possibility that fourth is there,” Sharp told talkSPORT.
“It’s massive on Sunday and I think Everton, Roberto Martinez and the players will be hoping for a similar atmosphere they got when Arsenal came to town a couple weeks ago.
“Goodison Park was bouncing and they want the same. Obviously there’s another reason because David Moyes is coming back and they want to put one over on him.
“So it’s got all the makings of a fantastic game but if Everton have got any dreams of making the Champions League they’ve got to win on Sunday.”
