Former England manager Sven Goran-Eriksson recently stated that he believes Gerrard will need to move clubs in order to win a Premier League title, but the man himself thinks otherwise.
Despite Liverpool's lowly eighth place finish in the league last season, they showed that they are capable of winning silverware after winning the League Cup and reaching the FA Cup final.
With new manager Brendan Rodgers at the helm and revolutionising the side by bringing in new players like Joe Allen, Fabio Borini and Nuri Sahin, Gerrard believes that they simply need a consistent run of form to be considered genuine title challengers.
"I don't think we're miles away," Gerrard told Sky Sports News. "We have to be realistic and we finished eighth in the league last year, but we got to two major cup finals which shows that we are a good team and we can compete with anyone on our day.
"If we find a better level of consistency at the club, I think we can find ourselves higher up the table than last year.
"Who knows what's around the corner? For me, I just take each game as it comes and hopefully before I hang my boots up I can realise the dream of winning it, but I'm also realistic as well."

The England captain also spoke about the impact Brendan Rodgers has had at the club since taking over.
He added: "Of course it's different. All managers are, and we have had a new coaching set-up, so there are bound to be differences, but it's not drastic changes.
"All the managers I have worked with have tried to play the right way for the club, it's worked out for some and it hasn't for others. Let's hope that it's a bright future under Brendan.
"He has more of a continental style, he wants to us to keep the ball more with emphasis on possession and winning the ball back as quickly as we can. Let's hope there is a bright future around the corner."
Liverpool impressed after they were held by defending champions Manchester City 2-2 over the weekend and will face another stern test this week when they go up against Arsenal.
