The Gunners were in standout form at the Emirates on Saturday evening, as goals from Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil ensured that Wenger's men claimed their first victory over Chelsea in the league since October 2011.
"Our defenders have done extremely well. You cannot say one player was not at the right level from Petr Cech to Alexis Sanchez," said Wenger, according to BBC Sport.
"We wanted to start strong in a high pace and committed way. We started wobbly in the first 20 minutes against Southampton. We wanted to be consistent in our pressure no matter the score. We did it very well in the first half. It was in and out in the second, which was understandable.
"Ideally you want the perfect game and you never get it. We got nearly the perfect first half and that is not bad. Football doesn't care for history and the anniversaries, just the result on the day. Today we had a good performance."
Arsenal currently occupy third spot in the league standings after six games.
