"I think in the future it will be very important to try (to create) a little space, a little room with the federation (Football Association) to try to give rest to the players", he said.
Admitting that his side looked "uncomfortable", Conte added: "We tried to pay football but I think today we didn't show this".
Conte dismissed reports that he could soon be leaving the London club and is confident of turning things around. For this reason, I'm a bit anxious.
He said: "I am not thinking for only one moment the possibility of going away from this club".
Chelsea have won only two of their last 10 games in all competitions and Conte insists responsibility must be divided if his side are to salvage their season.
Conte's future has been a hot topic during Chelsea's hard spell, and with the conclusion of the January transfer deadline day came renewed questions about his commitment to the club. "Jurgen Klopp, Jose Mourinho, they all went to Arsenal's rivals because Wenger was sat there in the manager's seat instead of saying the time was right to leave".
"We are talking a lot about bad results but we forgot that we're facing a serious situation", Conte said.
Ancelotti was chopped down a year after winning the double of Premier League and FA Cup and Luiz Felipe Scolari, a World Cup-winning coach, lasted barely six months. Conte upsets people. He wants you to play a certain way and he'll make you rock solid at the back.
