Aston Villa suffered their fourth defeat in five games with Man City next up at the weekend
When asked if he had any concerns over his future, Gerrard said in his post-match press conference: 'Of course I do.
'I am being honest and critical of myself. I will do my job the best I can do. I will step forward and take responsibility as best I can.
'But if I stood here and said I wasn't concerned you'd look at me as if I was from a different planet.'
Their opponents at the weekend are Manchester City, who put six past Nottingham Forest on Wednesday - including a 26-minute hat-trick from Erling Haaland.
Defeat to Manchester City would hand Villa their worst ever start to a Premier League season
Defeat at the weekend would give Villa their worst ever Premier League start after the opening six games to a season.
Their poor form goes back to the end of last season, where they notched just two victories in their final 11 games.
Gerrard said after the loss at the Emirates, that messages aren't getting across to players.
He said: 'We showed character and commitment and we were hanging on at times but if we keep getting important moments in key areas we will continue to concede goals.

'We speak about this most days and it's really frustrating that the messages don't seem to be getting through.'

The Liverpool legend has a win percentage of 35.3 per cent after 34 games with 12 wins and 17 defeats.
