The boss wants more “killers on the pitch” after admitting his team do not take enough of their chances.
Villa’s goals in last weekend’s 2-0 win over Norwich were their first from open play for five matches and Gerrard said: “We’ve got a lot of talent and a lot of options at the top end of the pitch but we need them all to be a bit more ruthless.
“We’re always looking to improve. We want to be as ambitious as we can. I think it’s a collective responsibility to make sure they bring their talent and best version of themselves for us to be more ruthless and score more goals which I think we can.
“With more work and more time around these players I’m sure we will.”
