Robinho believes Manchester City should aim high when it comes to their Premier League ambition.
The £32.5million British record signing recovered from a lengthy ankle injury in time to face Hull City last month and then Chelsea a week later at Eastlands.
City pulled off a superb 2-1 win over the current League leaders, forming a timely confidence boost after a run of seven consecutive draws.
The win takes City to within 11 points of Chelsea, a manageable gap according to the Brazilian ace.
Robinho believes his side are more than capable of catching the Blues, especially with a game in hand.
"We were really happy to win on Saturday," said Robinho.
"But the most important thing now is to win. There are still a lot of games to go and we want to be top."
Robinho admitted his delight in having finally recovered from the ankle injury which kept him sidelined for almost three months.
"I am just happy to be playing," he said.
"I feel excellent. I am strong, physically and mentally, and I want to play in every game. I like to play football anywhere, at any time."
