Speaking to BT Sport, Keown said: “That’s the sort of player that you want to breed. You want characters going forwards. Who are the players you can look at and say, ‘OK, cometh the hour, cometh the man’. We had three of them tonight.
“Aubameyang with the finish, Saka with the providing cross and Tierney started it with that goal, getting us back in the game.
“We’re having to learn quickly on our feet, but we might actually come out of it much stronger for having gone through this tonight. In the end, they showed a great deal of character.”
