AR Concentration

The following incident occurred during the EPL match between Chelsea and Swansea on Saturday 24 September 2011. The match finished 4—1.

One week after some poor decisions by ARs (plus some good decisions by ARs) in the English Premier League, there was another poor decision by an AR. Here is the freeze frame:

In the 86' with Chelsea leading 4—0, Swansea are awarded a free kick. Swansea defender Ashley Williams (white #2, furthest player away from the AR in the penalty area) is in an offside position when his team's free kick is taken. Williams scores with his head and the goal is awarded.

The AR is in the correct position but somehow has lost concentration.
