Liverpool's Carragher back in contention
"It is important for us to have Jamie back, not just the player or his position, but because of his character," manager Rafa Benitez said.
"Even before I came to Liverpool I knew Jamie was good but when you watch him in training, or in games, you can see what an inspiration he is to everyone.
"He is a player with character and passion. He can give the rest of his team-mates something different all the time."
