Carragher believes the breaks can prove valuable in terms of giving youngsters from the Academy a chance to shine.
"I enjoy international week because you get to see some of the young lads who have come down from the Academy," he explained to liverpoolfc.com. "I've been very impressed with Jordan Rossiter. He's done very well.
"It's good for us because it's a bit quieter around Melwood. It's a good time to recharge physically and mentally and get ready for Aston Villa.
"The aim is to win games. I wouldn't set any targets other than: win the next game. That's what we were doing before Southampton."
