Owen Hargreaves hailed Alexis Sanchez as one of the best players in the Premier League after his stunning display in Arsenal's 5-1 victory over West Ham on Saturday night.
However, Wenger showed sympathy for his counterpart Slaven Bilic.
It was hard to argue when the stadium announcer introduced Marlon Harewood, who scored the victor in this fixture 10 years ago, by joking that "there aren't many natural goalscorers at West Ham".
Earlier on Saturday, Costa, a naturalized Spaniard born in Brazil, had struck in Chelsea's 3-1 defeat of Manchester City at Etihad Stadium.
Wenger said Jenkinson simply needs more time to get back to his best after being sidelined for so long.
Slaven Bilic acknowledged West Ham are in a relegation fight and the sooner the Premier League strugglers realise that the better as the Croatian manager bids to save his job. The ball rolled out to Sanchez who skipped past Winston Reid with embarrassing ease.
Carroll's return should strike fear into the hearts of Arsenal's defenders with the memories of his hat-trick against them in April still fresh in the mind. This is a West Ham defence that always gives you another chance, and another, until you take it.

With space in which to operate with freedom in front of the West Ham back four, Sanchez and Ozil danced to their own tune. The goal was thanks to a very simple Mesut Ozil tap-in and while Arsenal continued to dominate much of the game, they were unable to extend their lead before half-time. "If it comes off, they want to stay there", said Wenger.
However he hopes that West Ham's performances last season have earned him the credit to be allowed to turn his team around. Hopefully he is going to stay fit and West Ham can only benefit.
"We are scoring more goals away from home than at home". A minute later and Fletcher released a low drive at goal that whizzed just wide of the post.
Counter-attacks are often conceived as rapid breaks from one penalty box to another, but Arsenal showed how it can be done by pressing in advanced areas and immediately playing shorter, incisive passes to get in behind an opposition's backline.
Randolph denied the Welshman's prodded effort with his legs and was back on his feet to block Ozil's volleyed follow up. Speaking after the match, Bilic said: "We had some good spells in the game like we've had some good spells in the season". Arthur Masuaku was up close to him, and Sanchez had little on.
Arsenal was never taken out of its comfort zone before Sanchez produced a moment of magic to double the lead in the 72nd.
Alexis Sanchez's hat-trick secured a win at London Stadium that lifted the Gunners to second in the table.
