Speaking to BT Sport after the final whistle, Wenger said: “The game had total commitment from two teams.
“We had a difficult start, they were on top in the first 20 minutes and I believe after that we came well back into the game.
“Of course, in the end we were the most disappointed because we were 3-2 up. But I feel as well at 3-2 we were guilty of two or three bad decisions in the final third where we tried to play not together enough and in the end we got caught on a long ball.
“It’s unfortunate, but overall you cannot fault both teams for giving absolutely everything.”
Roberto Firmino gave Liverpool the lead in the 10th minute after a bright start from the home side.
But Arsenal fought back and equalised against the run of play when Aaron Ramsey fired home four minutes later.
Firmino put the Reds ahead again with a superb curling effort in the 19th minute, only for Olivier Giroud to level from a corner in the 25th minute.
Giroud than put Arsenal ahead for the first time in the game when a superb turn and shot in the 55th minute.
But substitute Joe Allen fired home from close range in stoppage time to earn Jurgen Klopp’s men a point as snow started to fall at Anfield.
The result left Arsenal top of the Premier League table but only on goal difference.
