Chelsea were beaten by the Arsenal squad and finally stopped them in their EFL Cup semi-final lead where they were eliminated.
As the Premier League seemingly out of reach as well as the Champions League, nerves may be frayed at Stamford Bridge, but Conte is retaining faith.
“When the squad is not big you have to always play with the same players,” he said.
“I made a lot of rotations this season. We reached the semi-final and if you see before who played in this competition, we played with young players.
“ I have to do the same in the FA Cup, but then you risk going out. Against Norwich, we risked this.
“But it is not right to take only one game to make a decision to understand. There is a programme and a plan.
“It’s wrong we have to make decisions only on one game. The situation has always been the same since the summer. I continue to work and I’m very happy with my players.
“I continue to give everything for the club and the club makes the best decisions for the team.”
The Blues are currently third in the Premier League and will battle Newcastle on Sunday for a fourth place on the FA Cup.
