The England captain has played every minute of all 21 Barclays Premier League matches this season, scoring four times.
In recent weeks, in particular against Fulham and Sunderland, the 32-year-old has excelled and he thinks now people are starting to see the Gerrard of old.
"I've had mixed experiences this season," he said. "I've passed some unbelievable landmarks for club and country, getting to the 600-games mark and winning my 100th cap for England.
"But with the slow start we made and being where we have in the league it's been a bit mixed for me.
"There's my form as well. I've played well in some games but I've been disappointed with myself in others and I'm not happy with my goal tally at the moment.
"People's opinions, perceptions and the way they judge you changes when you get a goal.
"I think my performances are getting closer to where I want them to be so if I can add goals to those performances then maybe people will start saying the old Steven Gerrard is back."
