Fired by the 19 goals of the in-form Dutchman, Arsene Wenger's side have recorded seven wins from the last eight league games ahead of today's trip to the Etihad Stadium.
Van Persie -- who has smashed 33 goals in 2011 -- believes Arsenal must always aim for the top. "It's going to be a big test but we have played against world-class sides before -- nobody really expected us to beat Chelsea 5-3 away, but we did it," he said.
"I don't see why we can't surprise again. We're having a good run. "Everybody is confident and believes in themselves. The spirit is as high as it can get."
