The Gunners missed the chance to move four points clear of Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur in third after enduring a 0-0 draw with the Toffees at the Emirates on Tuesday night.
However, Wenger was angry with the referee for letting the Merseysiders get away with what he felt was some over-zealous tackling.
"I felt that the referee let a lot through on their side in the first half, but we adapted well and we responded very well physically and overall we kept a clean sheet - that was the target - and we wanted to score goals," Wenger told Sky Sports News.
"We had the chances to score, maybe we looked too much for power and not enough just to place the ball."
Arsenal travel to Fulham on Saturday.
