Liverpool's Gerrard plays down personal heroics
If Gerrard continues scoring at his current rate he could break his personal best of 23 goals in a season.
The 27-year-old added on the club's official website: "But I want to score as many goals as I can.
"I set myself a target before the start of each season, which I keep to myself! But things are going along nice and smoothly at the moment."
Three of Gerrard's tally this season have come from expertly-taken penalties, but the Anfield skipper admits he is still not certain of regular spot-kick duty.
He said: "The manager says before the game who takes the penalties. He swaps and changes, I don't know how he decides at all.
"I think I am scoring a few because Xabi Alonso is injured. I am trying to get as many as I can before he gets back!"
Gerrard's latest goal came in last weekend's 4-0 win against Bolton, a game in which he also claimed two assists.
Crosses and through balls might not be as memorable as goals but Gerrard insists they give him just as much enjoyment.
He said: "I get as much pleasure out of assists, I always have done. It is nice to score a goal but setting people up for them to score gives me a real buzz. That is part of my job from midfield."
