A comfortable victory against Leicester with Morata among the goals would get Chelsea nicely back on track ahead of the midweek FA Cup replay with Norwich and trips to Brighton in the league, then Arsenal for the decisive second leg of that Carabao Cup semifinal.
Conte feels most of his top players were exhausted after the grueling first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final against Arsenal and it showed in their performance.
Asked for his thoughts on Leicester's Jamie Vardy, Conte said: "For sure Vardy is a really good player and I don't like to speak about players of other teams but in this case we are not talking about transfer market".
"I have a lot of experience to deal with this type of situation (reports of a rumoured frustration)", said Conte.
"The ambition is not just for us to score but to continue to play after scoring and to always keep good ambition in our play".

Huddersfield v West Ham - This is a game that seems to guarantee goals as Huddersfield have only kept one clean sheet in their previous six and they can afford to have a real go at the John Smith's Stadium, where we are expecting an entertaining clash. Conte took a team that finished tenth and turned them into title-winners.
Chelsea also created a few chances of their own, but they failed to punish the away side's profligacy.
Conte added: "The problem is for the team, not only for Morata". He says what system we use does not make a difference at the moment. Very exhausted. I think we played with tiredness today. I understand Southampton are unhappy like I was not one time, more than one time when the mistake is against us. I saw a lot of players very exhausted.
