The Reds were 1-0 down to the hosts at the time, during a half in which Gerrard and co. came off second best.
But a moment of magic from the 33-year-old brought Liverpool back into proceedings, after he took the ball on in his own half and played a sensational long-range pass to Daniel Sturridge, who duly tucked his finish away for the equaliser.
The pass itself was sensational enough from Gerrard - hit with the outside of his foot and curled in between two Fulham defenders - but the fact that he hit it first time made it even more impressive.
And Gerrard had even slipped moments earlier, quickly regaining his composure to get to his feet and tee Sturridge up perfectly.
Boss Brendan Rodgers was understandably impressed, telling reporters: "It was at a critical moment in the game because we needed that just before half-time. His pass for the first goal, that penetration he has, he's shown all his life."
It was the Liverpool skipper's ninth assist of the season, matching his previous best total for a single Premier League campaign with 12 games to go. What's more, the Reds are now just four points off top spot...
Was Gerrard's pass to Sturridge the best of the season?
