The England skipper scored the winning goal from the penalty spot during the Reds' 2-1 comeback victory over Aston Villa on Sunday.
Gerrard, who also cleared a Christian Benteke header off the line, insists that the Merseysiders can claim a high finish.
"I think we showed a lot of character, we had to raise it a little bit after half time. We felt a little bit hard done by to be trailing, we thought we did enough in the first half to at least be level," Gerrard told Sky Sports News.
"After the manager (Brendan Rodgers) spoke, we needed to go out and score as early as we can and that gave us the confidence and belief to go on and win the game. One of my close friends has been giving me stick about my hair and actually said to me before the game that I might score the winner with my head today.
"The penalty was the winner but I think the header actually won us the game so he was right in the end. [We want] to win every game. We want to finish as high as we can. If we can nick fifth or sixth, that's what we want to try and do."
Liverpool currently sit seventh in the Premier League table.
