Gerrard was outstanding in the derby win over Everton this week.
"It's a different position to the one that I've played for the last 12 or 15 years," he told liverpoolfc.com.
"Previously, I've been trying to get from box to box. But the new role is more about control and organising the people in front of me.
"I know that with time and work on the training pitch, I can get it right because I believe I can play in a number of positions."
