Carra admits losing Gerrard is a big blow for Liverpool and says his pal is gutted to be sidelined with a torn hamstring.
"There's no doubt Steven will be missed whether we win, lose or draw because he is such an important player here," said the Liverpool vice-captain.
"Everyone knows what great quality Steven has got and it's frustrating for everyone, though nobody more than him, that he is out because he has been in such good form.
"But it's up to us to perform well and lessen the impact, like when we beat Spurs in January without him and Fernando.
"There are a few similarities because that game came a few days after a disappointing result against Stoke when we drew 1-1, but we showed we could bounce back."
