At the start of the 2012/13 campaign, it was suggested that the veteran centre-half would struggle to hold down a regular role when faced with competition from the likes of Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel.
Carragher did drop out of the Liverpool side for a spell, but has forced his way back into Brendan Rodgers' thoughts since Christmas.
He has justified his inclusion with a number of assured displays and is delighted to have played his part in the Reds' resurgence.
The 35-year-old has already announced that he will retire at the end of the season, and he is hoping he can maintain his high standards and bow out on a high.
Carragher told the Liverpool Echo: "At the start of the season I was aware that some people were saying I wouldn't suit Rodgers' style of football. But I think I have put that to bed in the last few games I have played.
"I think I've played well this season, without blowing my own trumpet. Even earlier in the season when I was playing in Europe and in the Carling Cup, I was quite pleased with how I performed.
"Hopefully I can carry that through to the end of the season.
"I enjoy the international week because you get to see some of the young lads who have come down from the academy.
"It's a good time to recharge physically and mentally and get ready for Aston Villa (on Sunday)."
