Though Gerrard is currently nursing his injured ankle, he cannot help dreaming about Liverpool clinching the Premier League title.
"It's something I think about almost every day. I always think about the dream of winning it or the disappointment if I was never to win it. To have played at Liverpool for 14 or 15 years by the time I finish and not win it would be hugely disappointing. It would be an awful shame," the Sun quoted Gerrard, as saying.
He has played just four league games this year due to a surgery.
He is convinced that his team would dominate the game over the next few years.
"And with the squad we have now, if we can keep improving and progressing and adding to it, we'll have a really good chance of becoming champions. It won't be for a lack of trying", Gerrard said.
"The squad is looking stronger, probably the strongest we've had for a long time. Now it's all about delivering because the tools are all there. At Liverpool your standards have got to be so high every single week. You have to perform every time," he added.
"That's what I've had to do every year and that's what the new lads are coming to terms with. The majority of them are strong British lads who know the league well and also have quality," he further said
