The Liverpool skipper made the comment in his recently released autobiography 'My Liverpool Story' saying that given his age and the strength of the teams competing, it would be more realistic to think about guiding his beloved club back into the top four.
"It will be a miracle if I now realise my dream of winning the title with Liverpool," he said.
"I say that because of my age and where we finished in the league the past couple of years. And also the situation we're in with the rivalries.
"There's not just United and Arsenal now but City, Chelsea and Tottenham. Newcastle coming as well. The Premier League has become a lot more difficult to win for everyone.
"We were eighth last year. If this season goes well, we get a bit of luck, improve, we have an outside, no, a 50-50 chance of being in the top four. That's being realistic. It's achievable.
"But even if we do sneak into the top four I'll be 33 at the end of the season, so that's why it'll be a miracle if we win the title before I finish.
"But I'll keep fighting. I'll keep trying and see what happens."
Gerrard was on the score sheet as team-mate Luis Suarez hit three goals in a 5-2 win over Norwich over the weekend. Despite the lopsided victory, the Merseysiders are 14th in the league after six rounds - 11 points behind leaders Chelsea.
