Looking on some advice on carpet replacement

The house we rent has the same green carpet in all rooms throughout the house.
I dropped the iron on the lounge carpet and it has left a large burn stain.
We found a carpet that matched the old was as close as possible and told the landlord we would pay to have the carpet replaced in the lounge.
However our landlord is now saying he wants us to replace the carpets in the whole house because all the carpets now won't exactly match.
Can he make us do this or is it just reasonable for us only to replace the lounge carpet?

Thanks for your help
