The Reds face Northampton on the back of their defeat at Manchester United.
Gerrard told liverpoolfc.tv: "It's going to take time before the new manager gets his feet in the door and gets his ideas over.
"Of course we're improving and the performance was really good. If we play like that every week we'll beat most of the teams in the league. But here we came up against a man in form and he was the difference.
"What's done is done and all we need to talk about in the next few days is the games we have got coming up.
"We've got a League Cup game against Northampton - and that competition is very important to us - before we play Sunderland next week.
"Nobody will be sulking because we want to make sure we go into the next international break next month having won all our games."
