The French midfielder joined Sunderland on loan from Russian club Rubin Kazan in the summer and has started 11 of the Wearside club's 12 Premier League fixtures thus far.
M'Vila is aware the team's form is more important than his own but has nonetheless been buoyed by the way he has adjusted to the rigours of England's top flight since his arrival at the Stadium of Light.
"I've been working enormously hard to produce the maximum I can in every match," M'Vila said.
"Individually it's been good, but the most important thing is the team.
"The Premier League is not easy at all, but I think that I've been able to adapt to English football more quickly than other leagues because it suits my game. I like to play, but I also find that I can use my aggression here.
"It's the type of football which I like, and the supporters here as well."
