Gerrard said: "Hopefully it's not too late.
"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."
