The German, making a full Premier League debut, worked as hard as anybody off the ball, but found opportunities hard to come by.
"It was a difficult game, Man United played very well at home and we wanted to press to be in every situation fighting for the ball," Schurrle told chelseafc.com. "For our first away game with this young team, a point is not bad.
"I'm not a typical number nine, I go right, left and deep, but it's okay for me. It's my third match. It's difficult to say something but I like [the Premier League] very much, I like the team very much. The matches are very intense and that's what I like."
