It was a frustrating afternoon for the hosts, who dominated proceedings at Stamford Bridge against a United team that has been in disarray in recent weeks.
Tuchel's men had 24 shots on goal in the contest compared to just 3 for the Red Devils, and they also had 66% possession compared to just 34% for United.
Michael Carrick's side also scored with one of their two shots on target in the game, as they held on for a hard-fought point.
Meanwhile, Tuchel was left to rue what he viewed as two dropped points in his eyes.
"I am absolutely happy with what the players put in. We created chances, had deliveries, had a huge amount of shots. Can we take them better? Yes," he added.
"We had so many high ball recoveries, so can we maybe create more chances from this superiority and ball wins? Yes, maybe. But listen, we put in the effort and the spectators feel that.
"So, the energy is right, the quality is right, and the result is the result. Today it wasn't in our favour. It should've been but we have to accept."
