JAMIE Carragher insists the mood remains positive at Melwood following the latest spate of injuries to hit the treatment room.
Daniel Agger, Glen Johnson and Fabio Aurelio all withdrew from international duty this week with minor knocks, but Carragher is hopeful his team-mates will be ready to face Manchester City next weekend.
Carragher, who will be back from a one-match suspension for the game, said: 'We haven't had that many players training due to the international break, plus the injuries at the club, but everyone's in good spirits.
'From a club point of view, if you're going to get injured the best time is maybe during an international break.
"At least it gives the medical staff time to work with the players and try and get them ready for the next match.
'Hopefully we can get everyone back and raring to go ahead of the Man City game.'
City boss Mark Hughes brings his team to Anfield next Saturday and will have ambitions of sending out a message of intent that the Premier League billionaires can break into the top four and claim a Champions League position this season.
