Gerrard concedes the man-marking he's experienced has forced a re-adjustment.
"It's been different this season," said Gerrard to the Daily Mail. "A couple of teams have set up to man-mark me and stifle me. Against Villa (Gabriel) Agbonlahor wasn't remotely interested in the ball or the game, only in following me. The other one was at West Ham, but Sam Allardyce has always done that with me.
"In those two games I found it hard to influence things so I've had loads of chats with Brendan about how to counter that if it happens, whether it's by moving out of position or moving further forward into a '10' position.
"We did that in a recent game and it worked really well and my form has actually been a lot better since people started to try and stifle me.
"I think you will see changes in my game. Brendan and I have worked some things out."
