The brilliant striker has netted seven goals in nine games and has already forged a promising partnership with new boy Jermain Defoe - who has enjoyed a fine start with four goals in three games.
It would be easy to suspect that the last thing Robbie would want while on the goal trail is a two and a half week break, but the frontman views it slightly differently.
"I've been doing well but everyone needs a break every now and again just to recharge the batteries," he reasoned.
"Hopefully it does do that because it can be a long season. To have the break is only going to help us.
"Things have been going well for me personally, hopefully that will continue and I don't see why having a little break should stop it."
Robbie readily accepted the challenge of compensating for the absence of Fredi Kanoute while the 12-goal striker was away on international duty. He said he thrives on such challenges.
"I like pressure. Before Christmas I didn't score as many goals as I hoped I would and the only way to respond to that was scoring a lot more in the new year.
"Luckily for me I have been able to do that and have been taking my chances."
Robbie Keane sees no reason why the lengthy gap between our fixtures should affect his recent fine form.
