Rashford, 19, scored the opening goal in an impressive performance in United's 2-0 win against Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday following his selection as a striker ahead of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
But Carragher reckons Chelsea's remaining fixtures are more favourable than Tottenham's, with Spurs still to play Arsenal and Manchester United.
United had conceded five goals and failed to score in its two losses to Chelsea this season - one in the league (4-0) and one in the FA Cup (1-0) - but Mourinho got his own back against his former club this time.
"We knew that playing this way would be very hard for them". "The league is open and we have a 50 percent probability to win [the title]".

"Chelsea are still in the box seat", Mills said, as quoted by BBC Radio 5 Live's Twitter account.
Chelsea do face a tough away trip to Goodison Park, where Everton's home record is brilliant, and the Blues know the pressure is now on with Spurs only four points behind them in the title race.
"We have to dust ourselves off and prepare for a huge semi-final, and then we go again with some important home games coming up".
But Rashford had to wait only two more minutes to give his side the lead, keeping his cool after a superb through pass from Ander Herrera to slide the ball past Begovic.
