West Ham boss Sam Allardyce criticised Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas and managers of other big clubs who castigate so-called smaller clubs for using defensive tactics in some away games.
Spurs have struggled to score goals this season, especially at home, and needed a late Roberto Soldado penalty to beat Hull City on Sunday.
The Hammers beat their London rivals at White Hart Lane earlier this month and they will face each other in north London again in the Capital One Cup in December.
Allardyce said: “When Tottenham go away in Europe they play the same way.
“Andre should really watch what he says, he wants to get praise when he uses those tactics and they work.”
