Wilshere has featured in all of Arsenal's Europa League games this season but made just his third Premier League start of the campaign in the 3-3 draw with Jurgen Klopp's men.
"I feel good and I have said for ages that I want to be playing in the Premier League," Wilshere said.
"I've played a lot of games in the Europa League and built my fitness up.
"I was patient and we've now got a few injuries and I've managed to get a few games in but I am happy and I want to stay in the team now.
"It's a busy schedule over Christmas. There are a lot of games where we are going to need all of the squad so I am happy."
Arsenal boss Wenger was pleased with Wilshere's performance and says the England midfielder in in excellent physical condition.
