L1 intermittent issue

Does anyone know a fix for this issue? My L1 only works sometimes at the moment. Started a WL game without knowing this and It was a nightmare to play. Player switching with just the right stick is so hit and miss.Tried to find solutions but can only see fixes for when the button doesn't work at all, I've tried resetting it, disconnecting and reconnecting from the PS4, I've taken the controller apart and I can't see obvious problems.

Any Ideas? Only have one controller and really wanted to get a few games in tonight. Will buy another one tomorrow if it's done.

    You're obviously experiencing the thing you thought wouldn't exist : button lag.

    No, the button doesn't always work outside of FIFA either. Get the same issue in other games and in menus. The game I played was smooth btw.

    You can switch the L1 button to a different button in the controller settings. But it sounds like you need a new controller either way

    Yeah I could probably switch L2 and L1, As I probably use L2 the least. Might just do that for now and get a new controller in the morning.

    I've switched the buttons and it's soo awkward, feels super weird but at least I can get some games in like this.

    Dunno why, but every fifa I swap L1+L2. And R1+R2. Catches me out everything I have a game round a mates house!

    I also don't use the default setup, I use the old Pro Evo controls. I only switched for Fifa 10. Never bothered learning the FIFA controls. It gets me everytime in my mates as well, always wonder why my players aren't sprinting before I realise lol

    Speaking of controller setup...anyone else use the dpad to move instead of the analog stick?
