The Magpies battled to a 2-1 victory at Forest thanks to two goals from Alexander Isak.
They are now three points behind third-placed United as a result of the result.
After the international week, Newcastle plays United at St. James’ Park.
“I think for a long time we’ve felt that United were guaranteed to be in the top four—Gary Neville went as far as to say they would finish second.
“But now it looks like they’re in a real fight to be in the top four, especially with Newcastle playing Manchester United next,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
