The North London outfit were forced to play the final 28 minutes with 10 men after Carl Jenkison was shown a red card for two bookable offences, and the boss was pleased with his side's performance.
"It was tight in the end, but it was a game with a high level of intensity where we have shown some brilliance going forward, but unfortunately we couldn't score the second goal," said Wenger.
"Then we had to show another side in the second half, especially in the last 20 minutes, down to 10 men, we needed to be resilient, committed and deal with everything they offered us.
"But overall, I think it was a typical Premier League game with top quality on both sides."
Arsenal are now fifth in the Premier League table.
