The Reds currently sit in fifth place.
Gerrard said: "Liverpool don't belong in seventh, eighth or ninth in the table. We want to push for the European places year after year.
"Hopefully it's not too late but we will need to produce the perfect finish to sneak in the back door.
"The top five places are the target. Let's see what happens in other big games that are not in our control.
"Hopefully the teams above us will slip up. All we can control is our performances and our consistency and hopefully we will finish strong."
