Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson had told Chelsea counterpart Jose Mourinho to "button his lip" for the rest of the season.
Ferguson also accused Mourinho of reacting badly when refereeing decisions have gone against the Blues.
The United boss said: "He's come out with stuff this week about us and I expected that.
"He's been talking about referees and I think he is the last person who should talk about referees."
Mourinho had claimed earlier this week that United's challenge for the Premiership and Champions League titles had been helped by a combination of good luck and controversial refereeing decisions.
United currently lead Chelsea at the top of the Premiership by nine points, having played a game more.
Ferguson's men could go 12 points clear with victory over Liverpool, as Chelsea do not play until Saturday evening.
Mourinho had drawn particular attention to United's Champions League win over Lille and their Premiership victory over Tottenham.
But Ferguson responded: "His football club have been involved with so many things with referees over the years.
"It seems to me that if you contest something and they don't get their own way, there's something happens, whether it's referees or players threatened or something like that.
"It's an incredible club, so I think he should button his lip now for good for the rest of the season, " said Ferguson who claimed to have a dossier on Chelsea's misdemeanours.
"There's plenty of talk about Chelsea and referees and Jose and referees. I have a big catalogue on it but I'll leave that for another day."
Ferguson also condemned Chelsea's role in the brawl that marred their Carling Cup final victory against Arsenal.
He said: "I think the clubs have to hold their hands up, we've had to do it ourselves, we're not exempt.
"Over the years there have been situations we've had to control and we've had some feisty players."
