Thomas Meunier got one back for PSG before the break and Kylian Mbappe looked to have snatched an undeserved Group C draw for the visitors with his 83rd-minute equaliser.
Asked about the performances of the big money duo and their team-mates, Keown said: 'PSG do not have that same unity or togetherness as Liverpool. "We have to keep going". "No game is easy".
