A140 Power Issue - any idea

We were driving home just and after slowing for a roundabout and traffic lights, the car almost stalled instead of increasing power when I pressed the accelerator.

The car is 9 years old. The only thing we could see was that the air breather tube had come off.

Did this affect the power on acceleration or is it likely to reoccur as it didnt come back after turning the ignition on and off.

Thank you.
