Jay Rodriguez’s seventh-minute opener was the only difference at the Goodison Park until Niasse was introduced for new signing Cenk Tosun in the 69th minute.
The 27-year-old forward connected well with Theo Walcott’s header to draw the Toffees level with his first touch in the encounter, 56 seconds after coming on.
Niasse’s sixth effort in 11 league appearances this campaign earned Sam Allardyce’s men their first league point since December 26, against the same opponent.
