Gerrard marked his eighth goal of the Premier League season off a header in the 44th minute of Sunday's 1-1 draw with Chelsea.

Gerrard only took one shot during the match and made it count before getting subbed off the pitch in the 79th minute for Lucas. The 34-year-old should be featured in the starting XI for his final two matches for Liverpool, the first of which coming against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Gerrard connected on one of his six shots against QPR on Saturday, notching his seventh goal of the season.

Gerrard started in the last two matches under manager Brendan Rodgers and the 34-year-old also has a chance to start in the final three matches of the season with the ongoing injury to Daniel Sturridge (hip). If that is indeed the case, then Gerrard is a solid option to close out the season despite the ample goal scorers that surround him.

Gerrard took two unsuccessful shots, one of which was on goal, during Saturday's 0-0 tie with West Brom.

Gerrard and his teammates had trouble initiating their offense Saturday and came away with the stalemate as a result. The 34-year-old's next opportunity on the pitch will come against Hull City on Tuesday, a team that is allowing their opponents to score an average of 1.36 goals per match this season.

Gerrard has served his three-match ban for stamping on Manchester United's Ander Herrera during their match on March 22, and he is eligible to play in Sunday's FA Cup semifinal against Aston Villa.

Liverpool haven't played particularly well of late, though Gerrard's absence isn't likely the culprit, given that he was basically a part-time player before the incident. Jordan Henderson continues to play exceptionally well this season, making the transition to life without Gerrard, which starts in July when he joins the Los Angeles Galaxy of MLS, an easy one.

Celtic said the team would be interested in bringing Gerrard to the club on loan during the MLS off-season, reports the Daily Mail.

Gerrard will join the L.A. Galaxy this summer, but could spend the winter playing in Europe as some other MLS stars have also don. The veteran has already said he will maintain his fitness by training at Liverpool, which could also present a loan option.

Gerrard (hamstring) was subbed onto the pitch in the 64th minute of Monday's match against Swansea City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Gerrard (hamstring) deemed himself fit to face Swansea City on Monday.

Gerrard has been sidelined for the last seven matches due to the ailment, though Liverpool have played well in his absence. Liverpool's title chances are over, as are their Champions League aspirations, but Gerrard can still help them fight for a top-four place before leaving for the LA Galaxy this summer.
